Board of Directors: 

Would you like to be part of the volunteer leadership team that ensures the success of the AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter?

Would you consider taking on a Board role, joining other fundraising professionals in advancing philanthropy within our region?

The AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter seeks fundraising professionals annually to join its Board of Directors. We are a working team, committed to our sector and the vibrancy of our chapter. Board members take responsibility for portfolios focused on education, marketing, communications, finance…and more. 

 If you’re interested in joining the Board please contact Marc Clare.


Would supporting an AFP GH Board member with the execution of their portfolio be of interest?
From time to time, our Chapter seeks non-profit professionals to join committees to support the various Board portfolios. Support is often needed in the area of education, events, and in particular for our National Philanthropy Day. 
If you’re interested in joining a committee, please contact Sylvie Rubbini.
