The Chamberlain Scholarship program honors Ralph E. Chamberlain, CFRE. Mr. Chamberlain had a long and distinguished career of service to the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), beginning in the 1960s when the organization was formed as the National Society of Fund Raisers (NSFR), through the late 1970s when the name was changed to the National Society of Fund Raising Executives (NSFRE), and until his death in 1999.
Mr. Chamberlain helped to form one of the organization's earliest chapters, today known as the Greater New York Chapter, and served as the fourth chair of NSFR's Board of Directors and as chair of the NSFRE Foundation. Because of his long-time support of the Foundation's annual fund and generous planned gift, the AFP Board of Directors renamed their Conference Scholar Program in 2000 to honor Mr. Chamberlain's memory and commitment to the Association.
AFP-GLAC will be accepting Chamberlain Scholarship applications in late August for AFP’s 56th AFP International Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Please watch for more information in our Chapter newsletter and on our website.
