Welcome to the Charlotte Harbor Chapter Website!

Founded in 2010, the AFP Charlotte Harbor chapter is committed to advancing professionalism in fundraising through education and training for our growing membership of development directors, fundraising consultants, grant writers, volunteer fundraisers, foundation executives, and other individuals dedicated to fundraising and philanthropy.

The AFP Charlotte Harbor chapter has regularly scheduled lunch meetings on the third Wednesday of each month featuring speakers and topics relevant to our everyday work. The chapter also offers several educational and networking opportunities in collaboration with the Charlotte Community Foundation's Nonprofit Network. Our annual event in November celebrates National Philanthropy Day® by recognizing and honoring the extraordinary in our community.

Check out our chapter calendar for a schedule of what's happening and where!
