AFP International

Founded in 1973, the Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter is one of 230 chapters of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the largest association of professional fundraisers in the world.  Each year, our chapter submits documentation to AFP to certify our compliance with association standards.  In fact, our chapter has received the AFP 10 Star Gold Award for many years, for activities we run that increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy.  All AFP chapters are first and foremost communities that foster the development and growth of fundraising professionals and promote high ethical standards in the fundraising profession.
