The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is the professional association of individuals responsible for generating philanthropic support for a wide variety of charitable organizations. Founded in 1960, AFP (formerly the National Society of Fund Raising Executives) advances philanthropy through its more than 30,000 members and 200 chapters throughout the world.
In addition to providing education, training, advocacy and research programs and services, AFP sets the highest standards for ethical behavior in the fundraising profession. AFP members are required annually to sign our Code of Ethical Principles and Standards, which was first developed in 1964 and is one of the few codes that is enforced. The AFP Code of Ethics has provided the basis for many codes of conduct for fundraising in countries around the world.
