Welcome to the AFP Vancouver Island Chapter website!

Our chapter represents fundraising professionals across Vancouver Island and we are your one-stop shop for information, education, certification, job-postings and networking events for professional and volunteer fundraisers.  It is our mission to support you in your professional fundraising journey and help you feel supported, connected and educated about the philanthropic process so that you can create a culture of philanthropy in your organization!

We are a volunteer led chapter, with the help of a part-time administrator Monical Powell.
