(Arlington, Virginia) The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the largest association of fundraising professionals in the world, has announced a new strategic partnership with online fundraising platform, Qgiv.
Qgiv is a comprehensive fundraising and event management platform that empowers over 6,500 nonprofits to raise more funds and foster deeper connections with their donors. With a focus on accessibility and pricing transparency, Qgiv has developed a product that makes it possible for nonprofits to expand their fundraising efforts and reach audiences who have limited resources or an inability to meet face-to-face. The platform supports donors with visual, auditory, or physical impairments so that nonprofits can offer an inclusive fundraising environment where everyone can interact and participate in fundraising initiatives.
“Qgiv’s focus on inclusivity puts their mission in line with AFP’s own mission and values, making this a natural partnership,” said Mike Geiger, MBA, CPA, president and CEO of AFP. “We are so pleased to welcome Qgiv as an Impact Partner and look forward to the expertise and guidance they can provide to the fundraising community.”
"We believe in the power of technology to transform the nonprofit sector and make philanthropy more accessible and efficient than ever before,” said Todd Baylis, CEO of Qgiv. “By joining forces with AFP Global, we are working together to empower nonprofits with the tools and resources they need to maximize impact in their communities. We look forward to collaborating with AFP Global to help nonprofits reach their potential and achieve their missions."
The AFP Partners Program provides participating organizations with year-round opportunities to engage the fundraising community and pursue corporate social responsibility through tangential support of the causes for which they work. Through thought leadership, marketing, content, and professional development channels, AFP Partners position themselves as industry leaders committed to advancing philanthropy and ethical fundraising worldwide. Their financial and programmatic support also enables AFP to develop highly competent fundraisers and educate the public on the industry’s ability to fuel societal change in critical arenas like education, healthcare, community development, equity and inclusion, and countless other missions.
