But diversity and inclusion are more than just principles that guide us. They help form the very identity and philosophy of AFP since it was first created in 1960.
Our role as fundraisers is to bring people—everyone—together to help create stronger communities and improve the quality of life for all people.
The very foundation of the philanthropic sector is to embrace all people, all groups.
In the same fashion, we welcome every individual—without exception—to the fundraising profession and the AFP community. For each member brings a unique array and wealth of talent, experience and perspectives that can only strengthen and enhance philanthropy.
And we look forward to seeing everyone—whether you are traveling from near or far—to the AFP International Fundraising Conference in San Francisco, April 30 – May 2, where we will welcome you with open arms as we come together to advance our profession and help change the world.
