Chapter Diversity Statement

We believe diversity and inclusion in fundraising is achieved by ensuring we intentionally create a respectful and welcoming environment that is open to all and is representative of a broad spectrum of experiences, perspectives, opinions and cultures.

 

 

Chapter Sponsors

Lead Chapter Sponsor

Toledo Community Foundation

Our thanks to our lead chapter sponsor, The Toledo Community Foundation. Because of their generosity, the AFP Northwest Ohio Chapter is able to provide FREE monthly webinars to all interested nonprofit fundraising professionals, board members, and volunteers. Normally, these webinars would cost $79 for AFP members and $99 for non-members, but thanks to the Toledo Community Foundation, our chapter is able to provide AFP's Webinars free to our members and to the community members-at-large.

In addition, the Foundation also funds our Membership Scholarship program. We are grateful for their investment in ethical and effective fundraising in our community.
