Social activist James Baldwin said "We are responsible for the world in which we find ourselves, if only because we are the only sentient force which can change it." Every day we witness the power of one person to provide civic betterment. AFP advances these philanthropic acts of service by enabling people and organizations to practice ethical and effective fundraising.

Though education and a sharing of resources, AFP promote the highest standards of service and ethics as demonstrated time and time again by Central Florida members.

AFP Central Florida board leaders are committed to offering programs which meet the needs of our non-profit community, regardless of your experience level or time in the non-profit world. I encourage your participation and look forward to hearing how you implement the new ideas within your organization:

Thank you for all that you do to serve and enhance our Central Florida community.
