Chapter Ten Star/Ten Star Gold Awards
The Chapter Ten Star/Ten Star Gold Awards honor those chapters who have accomplished many of the key objectives outlined in the Strategic Plan.
AFP’s Strategic Plan is the blueprint for organizational growth and success in the future. For the strategic plan to be effective, it must be implemented through a partnership between AFP Global and the local chapters. As each chapter contributes its part to the overall Strategic Plan, AFP will meet its goals and continue to advance philanthropy and the fundraising profession around the world.
The Chapter Ten Star & Ten Star Gold award honors those chapters who have accomplished many of the key objectives outlined in the Strategic Plan. Both Awards encourage chapters to perform specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy.
Ten Star Eligibility:
Your chapter must acknowledge and be committed to the AFP Global IDEA Statement of Principles
All Chapters can earn the Ten Star or Ten Star Gold Awards. There is no limit to the number of Ten Star Awards that can be presented in a given year. Regardless of size, budget or resources, as long as a chapter fulfills the necessary 12 goals (for Ten Star) or 18 Goals (for Ten Star Gold) it is eligible. The chapter must submit an award application by January 31, 2024 for activities completed during 2023. The application must be signed by the chapter president and one other board member.
Process and Deadline:
Several goals are required of all chapters for both the Ten Star and Ten Star Gold awards. Chapters can decide which optional goals to accomplish. Optional criteria and required criteria are listed beneath the main AFP Strategic Plan Goals so chapters may correlate their accomplishments to the advancement of the Association’s strategic goals and reinforce the vital role chapters and chapter leaders play.
Chapters must submit the application form by the deadline date. Submit all forms via the electronic application. All nominations must be received on or before Wednesday, January 31, 2024, 11:59 PM (Eastern Standard Time).
All application forms will be acknowledged by automated confirmation e-mail. AFP Global reserves the right to confirm and verify goals on a nomination-by-nomination basis. Any disputes to the Ten Star or Ten Star Gold nominations must be received at AFP Global by March 1, 2024. The AFP Chapter Support Committee will make final determination on any disputed applications.
