Give to the AFP Diverse Communities Scholarship Fund
July 12, 2011
The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy in coordination with the AFP Diversity Committee is pleased to announce a new Diversity Scholarship Fund for members of diverse communities to attend the AFP International Conference on Fundraising. This fund currently is broken out into three categories:
- African American
- Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender (GLBT)
- General Diversity Fund
As each AFP Diverse Community reaches 100 members, a new category will be added. The General Diversity Fund will be available to all seven of the AFP Diverse Communities (African American, Asian, GLBT, Faith-based, Hispanic, Jewish, and Rural). The scholarships will be given to those who work for small organizations and are either a member of one of the AFP Diverse Communities or work for an organization that serves diverse communities.
We ask that you consider making a personal gift toward the scholarship fund in addition to your gift to the Every Member Campaign. Depending on the amount we raise by July 31, 2011, will determine the number of scholarships we can award to the 2012 International Conference on Fundraising that will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, on April 1-3, 2012.
A gift to the Diversity Scholarship Fund is restricted and therefore does not count toward your chapters Every Member Campaign, but please know that you will be recognized by the Foundation for your total giving.
Your thoughtful consideration of this request by July 31, 2011, is very much appreciated. The pledge form can be found at the link below.
