The Fellows Program is an outreach program of the AFP St. Louis Chapter for those who want to excel in their professional fundraising skills. The Chapter awards two Fellowships each year, which includes a complimentary one-year AFP membership (with the opportunity to renew for a second year) and additional scholarship opportunities. Our chapter invites each Fellow to actively participate in all chapter activities and to join one of our many committees.

The Fellows program is available to new fundraisers (3 years of professional fundraising experience or less) OR fundraisers who work for a small non-profit organization.

Participating as an AFP Fellow, has been an incredibly rewarding endeavor. It provides premiere access to conferences, webinars, technical assistance, and special sessions which cover a wide range of development topics. These resources and activities can benefit a professional at any level of expertise. Likewise, by participating in the committees, mentorship program, and Chapter events- Fellows are connected to a warm and knowledgeable network of peers in the fundraising community.
