Membership FAQ's

How do I join AFP?
For complete information about joining AFP, go to the AFP International website or contact our Vice President for Membership.
 
I work for a very small organization. Are there any scholarships for membership available?
Yes!  The San Antonio Chapter offers one membership scholarship per year.  The application is available in early August and scholarships will be awarded in October. For more information, contact the Scholarship Chair here or visit the application.
 
Does my membership belong to me, or to the organization I work for?
Depending on the membership category you or organization selected when you became an AFP member, your membership. The Association of Fundraising Professionals may be an individual membership or an organizational membership. Please check with AFP Membership Services to confirm.
 
Does my membership stay with me if I switch organizations?
If your membership is a "professional" membership, it is assigned to you as an individual and members keep their membership if they switch jobs. If you joined under an organizational membership, the membership would remain with the organization if you should leave. That membership can then be assigned to another employee of the organization.
 
What is the cost of AFP membership?
When a member joins AFP, he or she joins both AFP International and a local chapter (exceptions exist if a chapter is not located close to the member). A member pays annual dues to both AFP International and the chapter. For "professional" (individual) members, AFP International dues for a regular member are $250 per year plus $50 per year for chapter dues. For more information about other types of membership and the associated member dues, visit the AFP International website or contact our Vice President for Membership.
 
Where do I renew my membership and pay my AFP dues?
You will receive a notice from AFP International when your membership is due for renewal. Please renew either by completing the paper form you receive and send your payment by check or credit card, or renew online with a credit card. Sending your renewals and payments to AFP San Antonio will only delay the process.
 
How do I make changes to or update my AFP membership information?
Members may change or update their information on the local website database by clicking on "log in" in the upper right hand corner of the Welcome page. After logging in, click on "my account" and the account information will appear. Click on one of the "edit" links to change information and then save it.
 
PLEASE NOTE:  Changing information on the local database will not automatically change your member information with AFP International. To change your membership information on the AFP International site, go to www.afpnet.org and sign in using the member number or email as the user name and your last name as the password. On the next page, click on "My AFP Profile" at the top of the page and the member profile will appear. If you need assistance, contact the AFP SA Executive Director.
