Make the AFP DC Chapter YOUR Chapter! As one of the largest and most active Association of Fundraising Professionals chapters, AFP DC is famous for its energy and enthusiasm here in the nation's fundraising capital! We have so much to offer with our informative educational sessions, interactive roundtables, job postings, the inspiring annual National Capital Philanthropy Day...and the list goes on.     

What keeps us ahead is new talent and fresh ideas. Help us remain on the cutting edge of the fundraising profession by lending your expertise and working with your equally committed colleagues in the spirit of fellowship and fun.  

The DC Chapter relies on volunteer power to keep our programs and services strong. Volunteering is a great way to meet other fundraising professionals in our area and it's also a lot of fun.  To join a committee, please complete and submit the form below.  Please note that while there is no guarantee your prefered committees will have availability, we will do our best to match you to a volunteer role that best suits your preference.
