AFP Diversity and Inclusion Philosophy Statement

AFP believes that diversity and inclusion create a strong, vital and unified force for an effective pursuit of an organization’s mission and achieving philanthropic success. Diversity and Inclusion in Fundraising: seeks to achieve a broad representation in experiences, perspectives, and cultures, to ensure that the best possible thinking, ideas, opportunities and solutions are considered; intentionally creates a respectful and welcoming environment that is open to all; and appreciates the unique contributions of every member of the community.
