You will have access to many educational opportunities - local and international, scholarships and resources to assist you in furthering the mission of your organization.

AFP Vancouver Island has more than 150 members, 12 of which have their professional fundraising certification (CFRE) and two Advanced Certified Fund Raising Executives (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 host regular education sessions, as well as networking ad social events. Our chapter also supports an annual scholarship and bursary program to help local fundraisers continue their professional education. 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.
