AFP: The Social Network for Young Fundraising Professionals
|“My friends have jobs. I have a career. I go to work every day, knowing I’m making a difference. And now I’m taking my
career to the next level, as an AFP Young Professional.”
—Natalie D. Gupton
Children’s Hospital Foundation
As a young fundraiser, you’re making a difference.
(Now, make a difference in your career.)
There aren’t many jobs you can go to everyday feeling good about the difference you’re making. As a fundraiser, you get to do what you love… and make an impact on the world.
But fundraising is about more than passion. It’s about skills. It’s about connections. It’s about learning from other young professionals, as well as seasoned vets, to help your organization (and your career).
At the Association of Fundraising Professionals, we understand that young professionals (age 30 and under) like you havea lot to offer. That’s why we’re giving you the opportunity to meet others who do what you do, to learn and network, to develop your skills and gain a career advantage that helps you stand apart.
AFP Membership. The best investment you ever made…in yourself.
