The Association of Fundraising Professionals 

1. Proclaim your professionalism. Adding your name to the ranks of over 28,000 fundraising professionals declares your pride in your profession!

2. Advertise your integrity. Since every AFP member signs his/her adherence to the Code of Ethical Principles and the Standards of Professional Practice every year, you align yourself with like-minded practitioners of ethical fundraising.

3. Advance your career. Enjoy educational opportunities designed to increase knowledge and keep up with the newest trends in fundraising, both on the international and local levels.

4. Further your cause. The more that you learn about the latest methods in fundraising, the better equipped you are to further the cause of the organization you represent.

5. Network with others who do what you do. Making connections is an important part of fundraising for the cause you represent. Meet others who can help you make those connections through international and chapter events.

6. Advocate for your profession. Serious-minded professionals know that serving the profession means responding to calls for action from those who represent the profession. AFP has an active program that monitors trends in regulations and practice standards and advises members on required action.

8. Don't reinvent the wheel...use available resources. AFP's Resource Center can provide you with the resources you need to do your job well. AFP staff can assist you in many areas ranging from how-to materials to samples of materials developed by other fundraising professionals.

9. Play a part in elevating the status of the fundraising professionals.  Your membership in AFP and your dedication to the ethical principles that guide the fundraising professionals.

10. Do it YOURSELF! It's all about YOU, the fundraising professional. AFP's educational, networking, and career planning programs will take you where you want to go!
