Carleton Establishes Collegiate Chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals

Ottawa - Carleton University officially launched its new collegiate chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals — an international network of professional fundraisers.

For a significantly reduced fee, Carleton students who aspire to a career in philanthropy can now access events and networking opportunities to help them prepare for a future in the field. There is only one other such chapter in the country. This new opportunity is a great fit, in part because of the master's and diploma programs in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership offered at Carleton and its status as a hub of philanthropic excellence.

There is a tradition of philanthropy at Carleton. We are a charity of choice for many generous donors, and their support has helped Carleton fulfill our promise to do good things for the world. We are proud to make a contribution to the profession itself, and inspire a new generation of philanthropic leaders. – Jennifer Conley, chief advancement officer.

We’re always told about careers in law, in medicine or in business, but we’re never told about careers in the charitable sector. We hope this group helps grow the dialogue that fundraising, and working in the charitable sector, is a viable career option. More importantly, we want students to know that there are organizations to support them and that there are people who want them to succeed. – Christian Robillard, president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Carleton Collegiate Chapter.

At the AFP Ottawa Chapter we're very pleased to support the AFP Carleton Collegiate Chapter. The members of the collegiate chapter will be tomorrow’s leaders in Ottawa's fundraising field and we look forward to working with them as they change the world. A big thank you goes out to the team at Carleton who are supporting this chapter and their work. – Derek Rumboldt-deLouché, president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Ottawa Chapter.
