Financial Reimbursements/ Scholarships
Guidelines for Financial Reimbursement Program
The AFP seeks to advance the fundraising professional through education and training. The Calgary & Area Chapter of AFP will increase accessibility to educational programs by offering financial reimbursement to individuals (members and non-members), to attend educational sessions and conferences relevant to fundraisers and offered locally, nationally and internationally.
The Calgary & Area Chapter has designated funds raised from Philanthropy Day each year to be set aside for the Education Fund. This fund will be used to award financial reimbursement for AFP members to support them in professional development opportunities.
