Welcome to the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Hampton Roads Chapter! Founded in 2001, we currently serve approximately 200 development professionals from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg, the Eastern Shore to the Outer Banks and all points in between. Our Chapter offers a variety of professional education and networking opportunities including luncheons, a Fundraising Leadership Symposium and member socials. Each November, AFP-HR sponsors a National Philanthropy Day Celebration where over 600 development professionals, philanthropists, board members and guests celebrate philanthropy in Hampton Roads by honoring our region’s philanthropic leaders.
We have been recognized by AFP International and have received the Ten Star Gold Award for outstanding achievements and dedication to increasing professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of philanthropy. Additionally, we received the Friends of Diversity Designation for our efforts to increase inclusion by embracing and engaging diverse individuals and organizations within the fundraising profession.
The AFP Hampton Roads Chapter Board of Directors and Programming Committee are very excited to present you with a new format for our 2020 programs! This means you can pick what works best for your schedule. In addition to luncheons, AFP will offer members-only pop up sessions during breakfasts and happy hours and will host our gatherings at various locations throughout Hampton Roads. These pop up sessions will be free and less formal than a luncheon, and offer the ability to do group work and network throughout the session. AFP Hampton Roads will continue to offer Membership Socials, as well as half-day and full-day seminars, for a deep dive into the topics that you care about most. You told us what you want, and we listened—join us!
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the AFP-Hampton Roads Chapter.
