Professional Development Scholarship

"I opened my eyes to a gift last fall. I delightedly read the email that stated that I was approved to receive a scholarship to attend the 2018 International AFP Conference! Thank you AFP SV for making that possible. Again you stimulated my passion for fundraising and made me think at a deeper level. Thank you for the gift of education. A gift to last me a lifetime!" - K.

Chapter Scholarships

Did you know that the Silicon Valley Chapter of AFP consists of nearly 300 members working to advance philanthropy through advocacy, research, education, and certification programs? Did you also know that there are a variety of Professional Development Scholarships available to you as a member of AFP SVC?

In 2014, $3,200 in scholarships were awarded to chapter members from small, medium and large organizations all throughout our community. Scholarships are provided to help underwrite the cost of local trainings as well as the AFP International Conference and other programs like the CFRE Study Guide.
