If you are in or are thinking about the fundraising profession, either as a career or a volunteer experience, then we welcome you to be a part of this dynamic organization - the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). Imagine being part of a network of over 30,000 fundraising professionals worldwide; the knowledge at your fingertips is endless. 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. 

I encourage you to reach out to me if you are interested in learning more about membership or getting involved as a volunteer. The benefits of joining AFP are endless... learn more and join today! We look forward to meeting you.
