Anti-Racism Book Group 

We are launching an Anti-racism Book Group and we want your input!

You are invited to participate as we explore and discuss how we can learn how to be anti-racist and take steps personally, in our organizations and communities, and in the fundraising profession.

Please follow the link to learn more and share your book and schedule preferences.

Book Group Survey

Today, we ask you to invest in the development and betterment of the fundraising profession. When you make a gift to the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy, it creates new opportunities and enhances existing ones like scholarships, education, and research. 

Each and every day, the important work you do makes an impact on philanthropy around the world. Together, we can empower fundraisers, strengthen communities, and transform the way donors give.  

Your gift will help support local, national, and international activities such as the Diversity and Chamberlain Scholarship programs, opportunities for leadership development, and philanthropy research that allows you to do your job better.

Furthermore, a portion of the funds donated by AFP South Sound comes back directly to our chapter, allowing us to innovate and grow the way we serve you here locally. 

You can help shape the future of fundraising when you make a gift today.
