Welcome to the website for the Greater San Fernando Valley Chapter of the
Association of Fundraising Professionals. We are glad you found this site, and I hope
that means that you are interested in developing your knowledge, skills and resources
in the fundraising profession. If so, you have come to the right place!

We are a chapter that is comprised of fundraising professionals from a range of non-
profit organizations and consulting firms throughout the greater SFV area. We are a
friendly group and we value and respect the amazing professionals in our Chapter and
are honored by the great range of expertise found within our group, and the causes with
whom we are associated.

We hold monthly luncheon meetings on the first Thursday of each month, 11:30-1:30,
at the Courtyard by Marriott in Sherman Oaks, featuring a strong and varied group
of speakers and funders. These educational sessions are a great way to learn new
techniques and tips to enhance your agency’s development program…and a great way
to network and learn from colleagues in the field. Use the Event Calendar to make your reservation.

I invite you to make time in your schedule to communicate and grow with us. On behalf
of the board of the Greater San Fernando Valley Chapters, welcome!
