Welcome to the AFP Maryland Chapter!

AFP Maryland is your source for professional development in Baltimore, Annapolis, and the surrounding counties!

Nearly 400 members and other development professionals meet frequently to learn from AFP International’s resources and participate in a range of chapter offerings, including: 

Regular programs and events that provide a wide range of education and training and opportunities for networking; roundtables to connect with peers around topics of interest and relevance; mentoring that brings experienced professionals together with those new to fundraising or who want to learn a new skill; a local job bank for job seekers; plus our annual Fundraising Day conference and National Philanthropy Day celebration. Check us out, join our chapter, get involved, and celebrate our profession.

AFP Maryland is Proud to be Recognized as a 2020 IDEA Champion!
