AFP IDEA Fellowships

The mission of the Minnesota Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals  (AFP-MN) is to advance ethical and effective fundraising.

AFP IDEA Fellowships are a one-year membership in AFP and a free pass – a “Golden Ticket” – to all trainings, events, and educational offerings available via AFP during the year. The first cohort of AFP IDEA Fellows will be active from January through December, 2019.

Fellowships are intended for current or aspiring fundraisers of color in Minnesota who are not already members of AFP-MN. A broad definition of fundraising applies here. Applicants are eligible if they are doing work to increase resources for their organizations and/or communities — or if they would like to start doing more of this kind of work.

As a key part of its current strategic plan, AFP-MN is focused on increasing inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) for people of color within the organization and the sector.

These Fellowships are meant to benefit both Fellows and the AFP-MN organization. Our hope is that recipients of these fellowships will bring their full selves to the organization – participating in as many AFP-MN educational offerings as possible and hopefully even joining (an) AFP-MN committee(s) that interest(s) them. In doing so, Fellows will bring their energy, skills, and knowledge to the organization, while they will also benefit from the relationships, education, and experiences that AFP-MN offers.

The application period for AFP IDEA Fellowships opens in October, 2018.
