AFP Greater Detroit's Be the Cause Campaign
Philanthropy has the power to transform society and fundraisers, like you, play a major role in this process. The BE the CAUSE Campaign embodies the importance and impact of a profession that values ethical and effective fundraising in the world and works in the interest of the public good. The campaign demonstrates what fundraisers do and why we do it.

  • Because education, training, mentoring and research empower fundraisers.
  • Because ethical and effective fundraising strengthen causes.
  • Because donors and volunteers supporting causes they value transform society.

Your gift is a strategic investment in your chapter and the AFP Foundation, supporting key initiatives such as:

  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Professional Education & Leadership Development
  • Research
  • Scholarships
