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!
