Diversity

We continue to look for opportunities to enhance and enrich our organization with programs, activities and membership that is reflective of the diversity within our community.  




Arizona AFP Statewide Conference Scholarship Program Opportunity

The Greater Arizona Chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals seeks to engage and involve members of diverse groups regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, and other characteristics that make them unique; with a focus on fundraising issues and to promote fundraising as a career.

The chapter’s goal is to promote diversity among our members in order to attract and recruit from these diverse communities. Additionally, the Greater Arizona Chapter seeks to advance philanthropy by promoting a better appreciation of how culture, religion and different lifestyles may impact the way people view philanthropy. In alignment with the Chapter’s Diversity Plan, two (2) $250 scholarships (total amount for this year’s state conference fee) will be offered for the July 2017 state conference (July 19-21, 2017).
