Annual Philanthropic Symposium

AFP Central Ontario offers networking and educational events as part of its professional development programming, with many sessions eligible for continuing education credit toward the CFRE and ACFRE credentials. Our annual June symposium, held in conjunction with our Annual General Meeting, creates dialogue around important topics that impact the charitable sector. The symposium provides both Chapter members and not-yet-members an opportunity to learn, network, engage, share ideas, and connect with fundraisers across our region, and around the globe.

National Philanthropy Day®

Mark Your Calendars

Throughout November, more than 50,000 people across North America, including members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, celebrate National Philanthropy Day® in recognition of the extraordinary difference made to communities across Canada by those involved as volunteers, donors and leaders.  

Our Chapter celebrates this day each year by drawing attention to the powerful impact of young people through our Youth in Philanthropy Award, and honouring the contribution of mentors in the fundraising field through The Eric Dean Award.
