(Arlington, Va.) – The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Northeast Wisconsin Chapter has been named a 2019 Ten Star Chapter, an honor our chapter has received annually for over a decade.
Every year, AFP honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan. Chapters receive the Ten Star Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just one-third of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters, so we are one of a select group of chapters to earn this honor.
Ten Star Chapters are recognized at the AFP International Conference on Fundraising (ICON). Chapters also earn the privilege of displaying the Ten Star logo on their website, newsletters and stationary--we like to celebrate how proud we are to be one of the top AFP chapters. You should be, too, knowing that you belong to a quality professional association at the local level.
Criteria for the award are determined by AFP International Headquarters. A list of several goals is published annually, and chapters must accomplish 10 of these goals during the year and submit a nomination form for verification to be honored.
