About the AFP Research Council
AFP established its Research Council in 1991 to identify AFP research priorities, recognize and promote research, publish research results, and seek support for research on philanthropy and fundraising.
Through its numerous activities, the Council explores both the theoretical and experiential boundaries of the philanthropic enterprise, expanding the knowledge base on which the professional practice of fundraising is founded.
Council members serve renewable three-year terms.
