AFP Congress Bursaries – Apply by Sept. 27th!

The AFP Greater Toronto Chapter recognizes the importance of creating opportunities for all sector professionals to attend Congress as a professional development opportunity. Bursaries are given to individuals who would benefit from networking with and learning best practices from some of the country’s leading fundraisers. Bursaries are available to professionals working in agencies raising $1,500,000 or less (excluding government and/or United Way funding). Some bursaries include travel and hotel accommodations.

The deadline to apply for all bursaries is Friday, September 27 at 5:00pm EST.

Individuals of all backgrounds and experience who meet the eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply. 

Individuals can apply to more than one bursary. All bursary recipients are expected to attend the full 3-day conference.

Bursaries are made possible through the support of our members who are donors to the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy – Canada’s Every Member Campaign and through the generosity of RBC.

We ask that you please take a moment to:

  • Share this information through your professional channels
  • Reach out to fundraisers you know from smaller shops who may be eligible for bursaries
