2018-2020 Strategic Plan

Last year, the Advancement Northwest Board adopted a new strategic plan, with the goal of increasing generosity across Washington State. We intend to do this by supporting you – the philanthropic community in Washington – through career-advancing programs; building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable board and membership; and by ensuring we have smart structures in place to run your chapter. 

Plans must be informed by those in action. Your feedback, observations, and questions will inform and enrich our plan. With your leadership, we will continue to evolve and adjust to ensure membership to AFP Advancement Northwest gives you the return on your investment you deserve. 

Building leaders who fundraise and inspiring fundraisers who lead

As one of the largest AFP chapters in the world, Advancement Northwest is transforming the relationship between donors and fundraisers, building a more vital culture of philanthropy and stronger communities for us all. We believe the fundraising profession must rise to meet the highest standards of innovation and find creative solutions to help philanthropists make an even bigger impact in advancing the ever-growing needs that nonprofit organizations serve.
