The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP)
exists to foster the development and growth of fundraising professionals and
the profession, to promote high ethical standards in the fundraising
profession and to preserve and enhance philanthropy and volunteerism.

life through the causes they serve. They serve the ideal of philanthropy;
are committed to the preservation and enhancement of volunteerism; and hold

donor is honestly fulfilled. To these ends, AFP members embrace certain
values that they strive to uphold in performing their responsibilities for
generating philanthropic support.
