AFP-RI Chapter Scholarships

Through the support of the Herbert E. Kaplan Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation, AFP-RI is able to provide full and partial professional development scholarships for AFP-RI trainings, education workshops.

Prospective scholarship recipients can include executive directors, development staff and leadership volunteers of grassroots and culturally diverse organizations. AFP membership is not necessarily required to qualify for a scholarship. These scholarships seek to subsidize, in part or in full, the cost of attending AFP-RI sessions.

During the National Philanthropy Day event, recognition is given to more than 50 Partners in Philanthropy by non-profit organizations who want to honor outstanding volunteers and donors.

In addition, we honor outstanding philanthropists in the following categories:

  • Outstanding Philanthropic Citizen
  • Outstanding Philanthropic Business

We accept nominations from non-profits and community members, as well as self-nominations.
