Association of Fundraising Professionals: Southern Arizona Chapter


Congratulations to the AFP Southern Arizona Chapter – one of 90 chapters who are receiving the 2019 Friends of Diversity Designation. 

The Friends of Diversity Designation recognizes those chapters who have accomplished many of the key objectives in our goal of advancing diversity. Thank you for all that our chapter does to increase inclusion, diversity, equity, and access in the fundraising profession.  It is very much appreciated. 


The Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Arizona Chapter will host its 31st annual National Philanthropy Day Awards luncheon on Friday, November 15, 2019 at The Tucson Convention Center Grand Ballroom. Registration is at 11:00 AM. The luncheon is 11:30 AM until 1:15 PM. Guess who’s the Emcee??? Tucson’s own editorial cartoonist from the Arizona Daily Star, David Fitzsimmons! Buy your tickets here.

National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is a special day set aside to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – to the enrichment of our lives, our community and our world. Though the primary goal of the event is to celebrate Tucson’s generous spirit, the National Philanthropy Day luncheon is the primary fundraiser for the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Arizona Chapter.

Six major awards will be presented to individuals and organizations whose philanthropic contributions and dedicated volunteerism improve the quality of life in our community.
