Welcome to the AFP Central Missouri Chapter

The Central MO AFP chapter is rapidly growing and addressing the challenges and questions non-profits and fundraisers face. We have the unique opportunity to meet these challenges with Mid-Missouri flair. AFP Central Missouri Chapter is a professional association whose membership is comprised of persons involved in development, grant writing, non-profit management, and fundraising consulting that is dedicated to fundraising and philanthropy.  It is a chapter of the international organization, Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Our membership continues to grow as our chapter works to achieve two primary goals:

• Foster the development and growth of fundraising professionals
• Preserve and promote philanthropy, volunteerism and high ethical standards in the fundraising profession

Please see our Upcoming Programs page for this month's meeting and see our Events Calendar for future meetings.

Help us improve this chapter! Please send suggestions or comments on what you'd like to see from this chapter of AFP to
