The New Faces of Fundraising
January 22, 2016
In 2016, your gift will help support the AFP Foundation’s planning phase of the New Faces of Fundraising expansion in North America.
"Over the next few years, New Faces of Fundraising will increase the number of fundraisers from diverse communities and fill the pipeline with new, nonprofit professionals as Baby Boomers retire. Fostering inclusion will empower emerging fundraisers, strengthen the philanthropic culture of local communities; and transform giving across North America."
Susan Earl Hosbach, CFRE
Chair, AFP Foundation for Philanthropy
WHY REPLICATE & EXPAND NOW
- Visible diversity in the fundraising profession is grossly inadequate to address societal needs ̶ 90% of AFP members are white/non-Hispanic.
- Bridgespan Group reports 640,000+ nonprofit leaders will retire this decade ̶ 80,000 new senior managers will be needed annually to fill the gap.
"Unfortunately, not all individuals from diverse communities are aware of the impact they can make right in their own backyards through fundraising, Giving others the tools they need for success and growth in the field is a gift to any community."

YOUR GIFT AT WORK
In 2016, you will help support the AFP Foundation’s efforts to:
- Develop a program toolkit for chapters;
- Prepare chapters to recruit program participants and nonprofit internship hosts; and
- Seek external funding to be re-granted to chapters for program implementation in future years.
"I’m so pleased the Greater Cincinnati Chapter and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation are creating change in our community through New Faces of Fundraising. We look forward to continuing to work with the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy and other chapters to enhance and expand this program in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Diversifying our field will bring important new perspectives to our work.
