AFP Friends of Diversity

AFP Friends of Diversity 2017
Diversity and inclusion in fundraising
seeks to achieve a broad representation of experiences, perspectives and cultures to ensure that the best possible thinking, ideas, opportunities, and solutions are considered; intentionally creates a respectful and welcoming environment that is open to all; and appreciates the unique contributions of every member of the community.

AFP believes that diversity and inclusion create a strong, vital and unified force for the effective pursuit of an organization's mission and the achievement of philanthropic success.

AFP Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties Chapter is proud to receive the Friends of Diversity Designation for 2017, which recognizes our accomplishments in many of the key objectives outlined in the advancing diversity strategic goal.
