about AFP and the northern new england chapter

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is the professional association for fundraisers and development executives. Since 1960, AFP has supported ethical and effective fundraising that has generated more than $1 trillion, enabling non-profit and charitable organizations of all types to achieve their missions to make the world a better place. AFP’s 31,000-plus individual and organizational members raise more than $100 billion annually--equivalent to one-third of all charitable giving in North America--and millions more around the world.

The Association of Fundraising Professionals-Northern New England provides ethical expertise and guidance to practitioners of philanthropy through education, training, mentoring, networking, and advocacy. We represent fundraising professionals from Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont who are dedicated to upholding the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.

Every year the Association of Fundraising Professionals honors chapters that excel at increasing professionalism within fundraising and promoting public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just one-third of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters. For 2021 AFP-Northern New England has once again achieved this distinction.
