2017 Annual Campaign

For over 30 years, the AFP-Greater Austin Chapter (AFP-GAC) has changed the philanthropic landscape of
Austin by providing ethical fundraising practices and education to new, middle and senior level
fundraising professionals and volunteers. The Association is currently operated by a dedicated volunteer
board of directors and an association management firm. Each AFP member understands the
commitment and desire to raise much-needed contributions, in an ethical and donor-centered way, so our
nonprofit organizations run effectively on a daily-basis and for the long-term. The profession has
advanced over the years, thanks to generous and continuous contributions to the field. Your gift supports
the work of AFP.

AFP’s programs increase the number of skilled fundraisers in the greater Austin area. We offer monthly
programs on a variety of topics such as capital campaigns, special events, data analysis and leadership
characteristics. Additionally, our organization offers in-depth training to support fundraisers seeking the
advanced certification of the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), a designation held by only 60
professionals in the greater Austin area. These programs provide the fundraising community with the
philanthropic education, respect and honor our community needs and deserves.

“I thank AFP and our local Austin chapter members for enabling me to experience the 50th Anniversary AFP International Conference in San Diego, it was so worth it! I was able to network with my peers from Austin, across the country and around the world. I also learned from top-of-the-line speakers and came back energized and full of new ideas.”
