Support the AFP Diverse Communities Scholarship Fund
July 17, 2012
The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy in coordination with the AFP Diversity & Inclusion Committee is pleased to announce the second year of a new Diversity Scholarship Fund for members of diverse communities to attend the AFP International Conference on Fundraising. This fund 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 separate category will be added, but the General Diversity Fund will be available to all seven of the AFP Diverse Communities (African American, Asian, Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender (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 their organization 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 August 31, 2012, will determine the number of scholarships we can award to the 2013 International Conference on Fundraising that will take place in San Diego, CA on April 7-9, 2013.
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 August 31, 2012 is very much appreciated. The pledge form can be found in the link below.
