AFP GREATER HOUSTON CHAPTER HONORED AS A 2017 TEN STAR CHAPTER

 

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Houston Chapter has once again been named a Ten Star Chapter. The Chapter has been named a Ten Star Chapter for 8 years in a row.

Every year, AFP honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in AFP’s 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. Some of these activities include: holding an event that focuses on the importance of ethics, sponsor a collegiate chapter, implementing a plan to increase participation of diverse individuals, creating or implementing a strategic plan and more.

On behalf of the AFP Greater Houston Chapter Board of Directors, we would like to thank our membership for helping us achieve this incredible honor once again.

 

“An important undertaking of the 2017 Board of Directors was crafting an ambitious strategic plan for our chapter. Our vision to elevate the fundraising profession, inspire exceptional fundraisers and advance philanthropic giving, directly coincides with the objectives of the Ten Star Award. We look forward to continuing our work alongside our membership to educate and foster growth within the fundraising profession.” – Dawn Koenning, Immediate Past President

“While 2017 was a tough year for most Houstonians with Hurricane Harvey, the resiliency and generosity of our community was clearly demonstrated. I believe one of the reasons our Chapter received the Ten Star Award is because of the amazing work our members do every day to support our community and its resiliency and generosity. I am incredibly proud of all we have done to advance our profession, and I’m glad we get to showcase this to other Chapters.” – Melissa Simon, Current President
