Stimulating a world of generosity and positive social good through fundraising best practices
AFP members from across our country contributed to 2022-2024 strategic plan for AFP in Canada. This is your plan for the fundraising profession in Canada. It's a joint plan for both AFP Canada and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy - Canada. Now, let's get to work and implement this great vision.
The original stewards of Turtle Island, also known as Canada, are the Indigenous peoples of this territory. The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) in Canada acknowledges the important relationship Indigenous peoples have with this vast space and the devastating legacy of colonization on their communities and the land we all occupy today.
AFP in Canada is committed to understanding the history and current realities of our diverse profession, including Indigenous, racialized and equity-deserving groups across the charitable sector. We acknowledge that the ongoing process of inclusion and reconciliation involve a review of the common practices that inform how Canadian charities value generosity and reciprocity. New paradigms, founded on principles of respect, allyship and justice, hold great potential in transforming the sector.
It is incumbent upon all of us—especially settlers on this land—to work in solidarity towards building a culture of belonging that will benefit everyone.
