Q: I thought my membership dues cover all the expenses for chapter benefits.
A: Only $50 of your annual membership fees fund the local chapter. Modest program fees, National Philanthropy Day, and donations to the Annual Campaign help fill the gap. Your gifts are critical to the continued success of our programs and without your support we would not be able to provide so many wonderful programs.
Q: Where does my support go?
A: Your support goes to create the following programs: Mentorship program, Master’s program, audio conferences, workshops, mixers, and luncheon programs. The chapter works hard to keep our program fees modest—the fees alone would never cover the cost of the programs. Additionally, your support provides numerous scholarships. Scholarship money funds training and education for our chapter members as well as partial membership fees for those who have just joined.
Q: What is the difference between the Silicon Valley Chapter Annual Campaign and the Be the Cause Campaign managed by the AFP Foundation?
A: The AFP SVC Annual Campaign raises money for your local chapter programs and the money stays here with the Silicon Valley chapter. The Be the Cause Campaign raises money for the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy which funds professional tools and resources like the AFP Online Knowledge Center and the AFP Ethics Assessment Inventory and research to increase knowledge of philanthropy for effective fundraising practices. For more information about the Foundation’s campaign go to AFPFoundation.org/bethecause.
