Affinity Groups

To support the Chapter’s diversity goals, the Affinity Group Program has been established.  Affinity Groups provide AFP members and other fundraising professionals with additional opportunities to be with other individuals from a particular affinity group or geographical area who share similar job responsibilities, challenges, and perspectives.  AFP members are encouraged to participate in any and all Affinity Group networking and educational gatherings as a way to enhance their membership.  Non-members who participate in Affinity Groups will benefit from the opportunity to learn more about AFP and how it can be an important part of their career development.
