AFP Chapters providing for you community.
If you are in or are thinking about the fundraising profession, either as a career or a volunteer experience, then we welcome you to be a part of this dynamic organization - the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). Imagine being part of a network of over 30,000 fundraising professionals worldwide; the knowledge at your fingertips is endless. You will have access to many educational opportunities - local and international, scholarships and resources to assist you in furthering the mission of your organization. National Philanthropy Day is our signature event, held in November every year. This is a time we celebrate and recognize philanthropy in our community. AFP Vancouver Island has 165 members, 12 of which have their professional fundraising certification (CFRE) and one Advanced Certified Fund Raising Executive (ACFRE). Through our mentorship program, we have the ability to match you with one of our senior fundraisers and/or we can connect you with a CFRE study group. We have members all over Vancouver Island and are proud to have been awarded the Ten Star Award again this year, insuring that our chapter maintains a level of excellence that further enhances the AFP experience of our members.
