Diversity Fellows



2019AFPFriendsOfDiversityLogo.jpg

Every year, AFP honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan.  Chapters receive the Friends of Diversity Designation for performing specific activities designed to increase diversity and inclusion within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy.
  Of the 244 chapters in AFP, 90 chapters received the 2019 Friends of Diversity Designation. 
 
The Fellows Program offers the opportunity to learn through interaction with peers that have significant fundraising experience (at least five years).  Mentors may advise on career paths, share information on regional development conferences and seminars or provide more detailed information relating to specific aspects of development.  The guidance and relationship overall will be guided primarily by the desires of the fellow.  The Fellows Program is intended to further the career skills and objectives of beginning/early development professionals or members new to the area.  It is not designated to provide long term or extensive organizational assistance.
