BE the CAUSE Campaign


Make a strategic investment in your Chapter: BE the CAUSE!


As a fundraiser, you know the importance of your base financially supporting the mission of your nonprofit.  The same is true for both our chapter and the AFP Foundation.  Your gift to the BE the CAUSE campaign is an investment in yourself, in fundraisers both today and in the future, and in the development of our profession.


Why Give? 

  • Based on the total amount raised, our chapter recieves 25-35% of all donations. Monies that our chapter gets back will be used for membership retention and recruitment, which will include maintaining and providing additional benefits for you - our members. 
  • As a donor to our chapter, you are supporting causes that you value that can transform our society and make you more effective and efficient in your career - ethical and effective fundraising, education, training, formal and informal mentoring, and networking.
  • You, as a chapter member, benefit from funds supporting the AFP Foundation:
    • Each year one member of our chapter gets a scholarship to cover the registration fee for attending the AFP Conference, a value of $799.
    • We can nominate a chapter member for a diversity scholarship to the AFP conference.
    • The Foundation supports your training and professional development - both in fundraising and leadership (e.g. Leadership Academy, AFP Conference), articles, etc.
    • Research is funded that increases your knowledge of fundraising, philanthropy, and social innovation, including the Growth in Giving Initiative - so you can be more effective.
