Our Goal for Fundraisers
AFP now has an opportunity—and a responsibility to not only invest in the areas of equity and access, but also to be leading the charge for all fundraisers to ensure AFP and the sector stay relevant not only to fundraisers, but to donors as well. We must take a comprehensive look at the barriers to professional equity and create resources to help tackle these issues.
One Program, Many Initiatives
The AFP IDEA Impact program will use a phased, multiyear approach to create initiatives focused on different diverse communities. Each initiative will have four components; research, education and training, support, and awareness geared towards effectively preparing the next generation of diverse fundraisers to lead the profession. The program and its initiatives will work to create a fundraising profession that is not only diverse, but inclusive and equitable.
The first initiative is the Women's Impact Initiative
Women's Impact Initiative
The Women’s Impact Initiative (WII) addresses and highlights specific issues and challenges that women in the fundraising profession face.
