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.
