Welcome!

AFP WPA is the key resource for fundraising and nonprofit professionals in Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Membership provides access to educational programs, networking opportunities and access to all of the benefits and services of AFP International. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming program!

OUR MISSION

AFP Western PA chapter advances philanthropy by growing a diverse community of people and organizations in the practice of ethical and effective fundraising.


When you attend a pairings event, you never know exactly what you are going to get, but you know it’s going to be good. Our new Perfect Pairings program is just like that!

Once a month (through May 2021) you will be paired with a different local fundraiser-based industry, aspirations, interests, tenure, and more. We’ll throw in a couple surprises too!

You’ll be given the opportunity to meet and get to know one another, after which you can decide if you’d like to “buy the bottle!”

Learn from one another, find similarities and see how you can help each other in the future.  Please contact Adele at adele.cannell@pitt.edu to join.

AFP understands the economic situation that many members (and soon-to-be members) are currently facing these days. That is why we are now making available online an "Installment Plan" option that breaks your annual membership fee into manageable monthly payments over the course of the year.

  • Ten Star Chapter

    Every year, AFP, the largest association of professional fundraisers in the world, honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just one-third of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters, so the Western PA Chapter is one of a select group of chapters to earn this honor.
