Q: I thought my membership dues cover all the expenses for chapter benefits.

A:  Only $50 of your annual membership fees fund the local chapter. Modest program fees, Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day, and donations to the Annual Campaign help fill the gap. Your gifts are critical to the continued success of our programs.

Q: Where does my support go?

A: Your gift helps to support the following programs: Mentorship program, Masters program, audio conferences, workshops, mixers, and luncheon programs. The chapter works hard to keep our program fees modest—the fees alone would never cover the cost of the programs. Additionally, your support provides numerous scholarships that fund training, membership, and education for chapter members.

Q: What is the difference between the Silicon Valley Chapter Annual Campaign and the Be the Cause Campaign managed by the AFP Foundation?

A: The AFP SVC Annual Campaign raises money for your local chapter programs and the money stays here with the Silicon Valley chapter. The Be the Cause Campaign raises money for the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy which funds professional tools and resources like the AFP Online Knowledge Center and the AFP Ethics Assessment Inventory, as well as research to increase knowledge of philanthropy for effective fundraising practices.
