The Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (AFP) annual awards program recognizes outstanding achievement by individual, foundation and corporate philanthropists, fundraising volunteers and fundraising professionals.
In philanthropy, such individuals and organizations form a vital partnership with charities and the nonprofit sector to ensure that the needs of all citizens are met. It is right and proper, therefore, that AFP honors those who hold high ethical standards and best exemplify commitment and dedication toward helping society.
These international awards are given in recognition to those individuals and organizations whose lifetime or long-term achievements have made a significant impact upon society.
A Note About the AFP Awards Committee: All awards recipients are chosen by the AFP Awards Committee. The committee reviews each application received by the stated deadline that satisfies all criteria. Due to the large number of entry forms submitted, the committee does not provide chapters or other applicants with an evaluation of their entry once the process is completed. If, in the judgment of the committee, no application for a particular award meets the stated criteria, no award will be given. The committee works to establish consistent criteria for each award.
