Be The Cause

Dear AFP Members and Friends,


As the year draws to a close, we’d like to remind you about our chapter’s annual Be The Cause campaign and the opportunity for all of us to make a meaningful impact. Donating to the Be The Cause campaign helps fund local, national, and international programs, including scholarships, leadership development, education, and much more to benefit our members.


We'd invite you to join the chapter board and other chapter members to make a gift towards our chapter goal. With your generous donations, we can continue supporting AFP programs and initiatives that will further our ability to help our organizations and our communities. Click here to make your donation today.


If you've already made your donation, please accept our heartfelt thanks.
