About AFP Golden Gate

Founded in 1971, the Association of Fundraising Professionals Golden Gate chapter provides professional support, education, and career enhancement opportunities for Bay Area fundraising-related professionals. With more than 450 active members, AFP Golden Gate serves as one of the largest chapters of AFP in the U.S. Our friendly and inclusive chapter inspires a high level of volunteer participation. We are a peer-driven organization, with an executive director and a highly engaged board of directors to lead the way in shaping and producing our dynamic programs and services. We are grateful for the generous contributions of Bay Area foundations, corporations and individuals who make our professional programs possible.


AFP Golden Gate promotes philanthropy and supports the effective and ethical work of the diverse community of Bay Area fundraising professionals.

Inclusion, Impact and Leadership

AFP Golden Gate is committed to creating a culture of inclusion. A culture of inclusion welcomes the breadth and depth of our experiences, perspectives and backgrounds into full participation. It creates the conditions for our best possible thinking and ideas to emerge, and supports us to take on leadership related to accessing opportunities and solving challenges in our profession.

We believe that:
  •  Building the capacity to use the benefits of our differences advances
     strategies that are important to all members.
  •  Developing shared practice gives us the stability and dignity to increasingly
     diversify our membership and leadership.
  •  A culture of inclusion allows us to be more nuanced in our leadership within
     our chapter and our impact across the sector.
