2018 AFP International Conference

Chamberlain Scholarship

Have you ever wanted to attend AFP's International Fundraising Conference?

Big things are coming to the Big Easy in 2018 — and not just the city's 300th anniversary! We're talking the world's biggest and baddest conference for professional fundraisers.

As a Chamberlain Scholar you will meet other fundraising professions in New Orleans, the home of jazz and Mardi Gras, for three days of learning, connecting, and culture; with a side of gumbo, of course.

The Chamberlain Scholar will receive paid registration to the International conference($10 processing fee) and from the Cape Fear Chapter, thanks to proceeds from National Philanthropy Day and other workshops, will provide up to $1,000 reimbursement towards qualified travel and lodging expenses.

Applicants must:

  • Be an active paid member of AFP and of the Cape Fear Region AFP Chapter.
  • Be employed as a fundraising professional or, if candidate is an executive director, a substantial amount of time must be devoted to fundraising.
  • Have never attended an AFP or NSFRE International Conference on Fundraising as a registered participant (unless as a member of the Conference Host Committee).
  • The selected applicant will be required to:
  • Complete an online evaluation form about his or her experience at International Conference.
  • Present to AFP Cape Fear Chapter about the conference at one of the scheduled chapter meeting following the conference.
  • Serve on an AFP committee.
