About the Foundations
The AFP Foundations for Philanthropy enhance philanthropy and volunteerism through programs of education, research, and service that benefit those who lead, serve and support nonprofit institutions. The purpose of the Foundations is to generate the resources to fund strategic initiatives that advance ethical and effective fundraising.
BE the CAUSE Campaign Reaches 81% of Goal
In cooperation with U.S. chapters, the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy has raised $377,255 in gifts and pledges from 4,271 donors as of October 31, 2014. This represents 81 percent of our $465,750 goal for the BE the CAUSE Campaign. Of the total raised, $133,247 (35%) is a result of the calling program managed pro bono by RuffaloCODY.
With just a few weeks left to go in 2014, remember to utilize the campaign materials available at afpfoundation.org/toolkit.
Here you will find a variety of resources such as a short animated video, a PowerPoint presentation, a brochure, solicitation letter templates, an insert, postcard, table tent cards, sample email solicitation copy, and a BE the CAUSE website: afpfoundation.org/bethecause. For more information download the Guidebook from the toolkit page.
Chapter IMPACT Campaign 2014
As of October 2014, 89 U.S. and Canadian Chapters have contributed $56,997 to the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy through the Chapter IMPACT Campaign (formerly the Chapter Treasury Campaign). The total raised to date is 53% of the $107,000 goal.
