What an honor to be named a Ten Star AFP Chapter!

AFP Advancement Northwest is one of 84 chapters, out of 241 worldwide, to receive a 2015 Ten Star Award.

“Our Ten Star Chapters have demonstrated outstanding programming and leadership for the fundraising profession, and I’m pleased to recognize their outstanding efforts,” says Andrew Watt, FInstF, President and CEO of AFP.

Ten Star Chapters are honored each year for achieving goals that align with key objects in AFP’s long-range strategic plan, and by demonstrating a commitment to increasing professionalism within fundraising and public awareness about the important of philanthropy.

“Each one of our committees of hard-working volunteers plays an important role in achieving an honor like this,” says Advancement Northwest President Ray Li. “Every day, I’m reminded how great it is to be surrounded by such smart and committed people working to make our sector amazing.”

AFP International will formally recognize Advancement Northwest and other Ten Star AFP Chapters at the organization’s 2016 International Fundraising Conference in Boston.

We’re equally proud to be named one of AFP’s 2015 Friends of Diversity – another honor that will be recognized at conference in Boston.
