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 Foundation is to generate resources for strategic initiatives that advance fundraising worldwide.
AFP Foundation for Philanthropy – United States
As of May 1, 2016, the BE the CAUSE Campaign has raised $175,408 in gifts and pledges from 1,502 donors. This represents 35% of our $500,000 goal. In comparison, the campaign had raised $160,115 in gifts and pledges as of May 1, 2015 – a 9.6% increase in giving thus far in 2016. Of the total raised, $25,899 (15%) by 343 donors resulted from the renewal letter, with an average gift of $75.51.
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."
