AFP Vancouver Island News & Events

Happy New Year!

AFP Vancouver Island

2023 marks the 30th anniversary of our chapter – a truly significant milestone – that wouldn’t be possible without our amazing membership, so thank YOU!

For the last 30 years, AFP VI has been dedicated to promoting and advancing ethical and effective fundraising across Vancouver Island. This has been done through programs and services focused on professional development, networking opportunities, and recognition of outstanding achievements in the

fundraising profession.

AFP VI has played a vital role in the non-profit sector by providing education, support, and resources to fundraisers, volunteers, and organizations. Members have raised millions of dollars for a multitude of causes, making a real and lasting impact in our communities.

In 2023, your AFP VI Board will be focused on the four following goals:

  1. Promote inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA)
  2. Provide relevant and high-quality education about the fundraising profession in Canada
  3. Increase capacity and strengthen community
  4. Champion ethical fundraising practices

While we reflect on the past and acknowledge the incredible accomplishments and contributions of all our members, we will continue to grow, evolve, and build a sector we can be proud of.

Job Postings

Salary range is now required for AFP Vancouver Island job postings

In line with AFP Global and in order to promote gender and racial pay equity, we require that a salary range be included for all job postings. This will make negotiations easier for both employer and candidate, and will also help save time and resources for employers by ensuring that those who apply are candidates whose skills, experience and salary expectations align with the requirements of the role.

In addition, research has shown that posting the salary range increases the reach and attention ads receive by 30%. AFP Vancouver Island job postings are an effective way for employers to reach qualified applicants, committed to the sector and we thank all past, present and future employers who choose to post with us.
