IDEA | Association of Fundraising Professionals - Greater Vancouver Chapter



AFP 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; men and women alike 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.
