The Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) has been serving nonprofit fundraisers in the 13 counties of Northwestern Pennsylvania for more than 15 years. Whether you are new to the fundraising profession or a seasoned veteran, AFP provides individuals with educational and networking opportunities that help you propel your fundraising efforts to a new level.

The Northwestern Pennsylvania Chapter of AFP has its roots in Erie, Pennsylvania when a small group of fundraisers decided to gather together to meet and share ideas on how to develop funding resources for their nonprofits. Eventually, this group joined forces with National Society of Fundraising Professionals--now the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Our chapter invites you to explore the benefits of membership in The Association of Fundraising Professionals. For more information, please contact Dawn Johnson, Chapter Administrator, at 814-734-3039 or by email at admin@afpnwpa.org.
