Welcome to the AFP Greater New Orleans Chapter!

The mission of the Greater New Orleans chapter of the AFP is to promote the development and growth of professional fundraising executives who are committed to the preservation and advancement of philanthropy in our society and in our nonprofit institutions.

Now, more than any other time in the history of the greater New Orleans region, it is important to promote a healthy nonprofit sector with ethical, responsible fundraisers.   As our city continues to recover and flourish, there is much work to be done.  AFP New Orleans Chapter's more than 200 members present a broad spectrum of professional abilities, personal experience, and cultural backgrounds, all united in one common cause - the greater good of our community.   Representing diverse organizations in the areas of health, human services, education, religion, the arts, civic organizations and affiliated consulting firms, our members work for museums, hospitals, universities, community-based organizations, theaters, mutual aid societies, and a variety of civic, religious and recreational organizations.

We hope to see you at one of our New Orleans events soon!
