Welcome and Introduction Print

The AFP Genesee Valley Chapter is a volunteer-based organization representing more than 200 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.

The chapter is affiliated with an international association, which works to advance philanthropy through advocacy, research, education, and certification programs. The Association strives to enhance philanthropy and volunteerism through a series of programs designed to benefit all those who lead, serve, and support non-profit institutions.
