What does this designation mean? Every year, AFP honors chapters for achieving goals that align with key objectives in its long-range strategic plan (a minimum of 10 goals). Chapters receive the Ten Star Award for performing specific activities designed to increase professionalism within fundraising and public awareness of the importance of philanthropy. Just two-thirds of all AFP chapters are named Ten Star Chapters. This is the first time in nearly 20 years that the AFP Miami Chapter has received this distinction. #afpmiami #afpglobal #afpihq #tenstaraward #tenstarchapteraward #2022award Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP)
