ASSOCIATION OF FUNDRAISING PROFESSIONALS GREATER TRISTATE CHAPTER HONORED AS TEN STAR GOLD CHAPTER
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Tristate Chapter (AFP Greater Tristate Chapter) has been named a 2021 Ten Star GOLD Chapter.
Every year, AFP, the largest association of professional fundraisers in the world, honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star GOLD Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy.
Less than 20 percent of AFP’s 200 professional chapters earn the Ten Star Gold Chapter recognition, making the AFP Greater Tristate Chapter one of the association’s leading chapters around the world.
Chapter president Wendy Knight, stated: “I am thrilled that the Greater TriState AFP chapter has been honored by the Association of Fundraising Professionals for our work this past year. While it was a challenging one for each of us, the fundraising professionals who volunteer and engage with our local chapter worked diligently to uphold the highest standards of fundraising and support one another during the most trying times. We are blessed to have amazing philanthropists.”
Ten Star Gold Chapters are recognized at the AFP International Conference on Fundraising (ICON). Chapters also earn the privilege of displaying the Ten Star Gold logo on their website, newsletters and stationery.
Criteria for the award are determined by AFP Global Headquarters. A list of several goals is published annually, and chapters must accomplish 15 of these goals during the year and submit a nomination form for verification to be honored.
