Welcome to The Association of Fundraising Professionals Genesee Valley Chapter 

Thank you for visiting our new website! The AFP Genesee Valley Chapter is a volunteer-based organization representing more than 250 fundraising professionals in the Greater Rochester region. Our mission is to advocate for philanthropy and to promote ethical and successful non-profit development by addressing the needs of diverse fundraising professionals in our region. 

Events are open to everyone, not just members. Have a look around and if you're a member, use the Member Login button at the top for access to members only information including a membership directory, webinars, and more.


Each year our chapter participates in AFP Foundation for Philanthropy's BE the CAUSE campaign, an annual fundraising campaign that raises dollars that contribute to the value that AFP delivers to its chapters and its members. 

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. Donating is quick and easy!
