Welcome to the AFP Northwest Ohio Chapter Website!

The Northwest Ohio Chapter was founded in 1987 to serve non-profit development professionals throughout Northwest Ohio. The Chapter is based in Toledo and has approximately 120 members.  Our chapter is lead by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by a volunteer Chapter Administrator.

Annually, we host a wide variety of professional development and education programs open to both AFP members and community participants. We also offer membership scholarships and host our community’s National Philanthropy Day celebration each November.

We communicate with our members and the community through this website and our monthly email correspondence. To join the email list, please send a message to nwoafp@gmail.com.

Thank you for visiting our Chapter’s website.  Please do not hesitate to contact one of the Committee Chairs or an Executive Committee Member if you have any questions regarding membership or programs. Additionally, our Chapter Administrator can be reached at nwoafp@gmail.com.
