2014 AFP Diverse Communities Scholarship Program Overview & Criteria

January 3, 2014

Advancing Diversity by Establishing a Diverse Profession 

A 2014 Joint Strategic Initiative of AFP and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy

Make an online secure gift to the Diversity Scholarships Campaign.   

As a community of inclusion, the Association of Fundraising Professionals seeks, embraces, and engages diverse individuals, groups, and organizations with a broad representation of experiences, perspectives, thoughts and cultures within the fundraising profession. Through this strategic initiative, AFP is committed to activities that increase awareness of diversity issues. As part of this commitment, AFP has created a diversity scholarship program to provide financial assistance for the professional development of AFP members who are themselves members of a diverse community, or are employed by grassroots organizations that primarily serve diverse populations.

The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy invites all AFP members to support diversity within the fundraising profession through the Diversity Scholarship Campaign. Contributions to this campaign will fund scholarships to support registration and travel costs to attend the annual AFP International Conference on Fundraising.

Scholarships will be offered in each of three categories provided the category achieves sufficient funding. The AFP Foundation offers our donors the opportunity to direct their gifts to one of the following categories:  

  • The General Diversity Scholarship Fund – reserved for applicants who identify themselves as members of the AFP diversity community of fundraising professionals.
  • The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) Scholarship Fund – reserved for applicants who are members of the AFP GLBT diverse community of fundraising professionals.
  • The African-American Diversity Scholarship Fund – reserved for applicants of the AFP African-American diverse community of fundraising professionals.

Should you have questions about the AFP the Diversity Scholarship Program, please contact the Lori Gusdorf at (703) 519-8449, or by email at lgusdorf@afpnet.org.
