AFP Business Membership
December 14, 2016
A Direct Path to New Business Opportunities
For many years, companies in the for-profit sector have provided valuable support to AFP and have sought to play a more active role. In response, AFP, with the assistance of the AFP Industry Partners Council (see below), revised the AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards to provide for business partners.
Qualified businesses are welcome to join and to engage their staff members in AFP. This is an opportunity to be heard by the thousands of fundraisers who belong to AFP.
Dedication to Ethics
AFP Business Members sign their adherence to the AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards and, in so doing, show their dedication to advancing accountable and effective fundraising. With the assistance of the AFP Industry Partners Council, AFP expanded and enhanced its code in 2007 to account for its new business members.
AFP Business Members have access to key nonprofit leaders and policymakers. The for-profit company can tap into information on all aspects of the profession, with state-of-the-art technology and historical data to obtain insight and analysis into philanthropic trends and outlooks.
