When I grow up I want to be…

An astronaut.
A ballerina.
A doctor.

We know you probably didn’t go to career day as a young child with aspirations to impact the greater interfraternal community. You might have ‘wished’ for a different path in early years. Your journey to where you are may have been untraditional. You might consider yourself ‘just stopping through’ the fraternity/sorority realm in a quest for a different role or consider this profession your life’s work. Whatever the case may be, the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors is working to support you, so you can support the BIG dreams of the students you impact everyday.

It’s important to remember that as the Association supports you, the Foundation supports the Association, individual members and our wider communities.

FUNDRAISING

Silent Auction

Since 1994, the Silent Auction has been the AFA Foundation's most popular event, raising over $350,000. Donors and buyers help the Foundation fund projects aimed at strengthening our profession, including research and professional development programs.

Because You Believe Stickers

Because You Believe stickers are a great way to acknowledge and thank your colleagues for believing in you! At the 2017 Annual Meeting, we raised almost $3,500 from members who wanted to honor a mentor, fellow volunteer, former coworker, or friend. All sticker sales benefited the AFA Foundation and publicly recognized someone who made a difference in a member's life.

The Amicus Sequentes Circle

“I value sustained philanthropic giving and know that’s what I’m doing when I added AFA Foundation as a percentage benefactor in my 401K documents, it’s a small act that will contribute to the long-term health of AFA.”
–A member of The Circle

The AFA Foundation has established a planned giving recognition society known as the Amicus Sequentes Circle, or “friends to those who follow”. The Amicus Sequentes Circle honors those who leave a legacy for the future of the Association through specific gifts or bequests. If you have included the AFA Foundation in your will or estate plan and have not notified the Foundation, please do so, and you will be recognized as a member of the Amicus Sequentes Circle. Members of The Circle will be listed to be recognized or you may give anonymously. The Foundation’s Board members and staff welcome your inquiries and will assist you in becoming a member of the Amicus Sequentes Circle.

We thank the following people for trusting the Foundation with their gift, it is a true honor to be a part of your individual legacy:

GRANTS

Mission

The Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Foundation’s giving mission is to provide ongoing financial support and resources in an effort to aid the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors in the fulfillment of its educational objectives.

Priorities

In keeping with this mission, the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Foundation shall give preference to educational (scholarships, fellowships, professional development) grant requests from the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors or organizations that are collaborating with AFA. Consideration will also be given to grant requests from other individuals and organizations that further this mission.

Schedule

The Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors invites faculty, staff, and graduate students to submit grants for consideration for funding. Preference will be given to projects that are innovative and closely aligned to our strategic research aims.

Guidelines
  • Activities supported by grants and program-related investments must be educational or scientific, as defined under the appropriate provisions of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and Treasury Regulations.
  • Grants are available for both members and non-members of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors.
  • Individual grants may not be given to members of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Foundation Board.
  • Grants may not be used for undergraduate purposes.
  • Recipients may not receive grants two years in a row, other than on-going annual contributors as determined by the board.
  • The duration of a grant is for one year.
  • All funds which are not spent at the end of the grant term must be returned to the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Foundation.
  • Because its funds are limited in relation to the great number of worthwhile proposals received, the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors Foundation directs its support to activities that are within its current interest and are likely to have wide effect.
 

SCHOLARSHIPS
