About Our Chapter

We are a local network of fundraising professionals covering all facets of nonprofit development. Our mission is to empower and uplift our development colleagues and the nonprofit organizations they serve through education and networking. We provide a sense of community and support for our colleagues throughout the greater Los Angeles area through inclusive and diverse programming. 


We have over 250 active AFP-GLAC members, serving in various roles including as development directors, fundraising consultants, grant writers, volunteer fundraisers, foundation executives, communication managers, and more. 


The AFP Greater Los Angeles Chapter hosts virtual and in-person events on topics relevant to our everyday work. We offer a blend of networking and educational opportunities through our local area webinars, meet-ups, roundtables, advanced executive forums, emerging leader sessions, and National Philanthropy Day® reception & celebration. Check out the chapter calendar here for a schedule of what's happening and where!


The chapter is fully organized and operated by the Board of Directors, which is composed of chapter members who volunteer their time, talents, and resources. We are also supported by two administrative staff members from Maple Street Management. If you’d like to get more involved through board or committee service, please visit our Volunteer Page.
