Diversity and Inclusion Philosophy Statement

AFP and AFP West Michigan believe that diversity and inclusion create a strong, vital and unified force for the effective pursuit of an organization’s mission and achieving philanthropic success.

 

Diversity and Inclusion Definition

Diversity and Inclusion in Fundraising seeks to

  • achieve a broad representation of experiences, perspectives and cultures to ensure that the best possible thinking, ideas, opportunities and solutions are considered;
  • intentionally creates a respectful and welcoming environment that is open to all, and
  • encourages the unique contributions of every member of the community.
