Join the Alpha Society!
April 7, 2016
The Alpha Society is the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy’s monthly giving program that provides essential resources to fund scholarships, research, lectures and other programs that empower professional fundraisers to have an increasingly beneficial impact on the communities they serve.
Donors are encouraged to join the Alpha Society and give a portion of their gift every month. The Foundation offers two options for joining the Alpha Society: It’s fast and easy to sign up for the Alpha Society online; or complete an Alpha Society pledge form and mail it to the Foundation at 4300 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 300, Arlington, VA 22203. Either way, the Alpha Society is truly the best way to give!
Alpha Society monthly gifts are automatically processed on the 20th of each month (unless another specific date is requested) by credit card or through checking account deductions—saving time, postage and paperwork. Renewal in the Alpha Society is automatic each year. However, participation and level of giving may be modified at any time by contacting Suzan Weihofen at (800) 666-3863, ext. 448.
Monthly gifts ensure consistent support for strategic initiatives that benefit AFP members and the profession, such as promoting diversity within the fundraising community, providing ethics education for fundraisers and nonprofit managers across the sector and enhancing education at the chapter level to promote effective fundraising practices.
