AFA Foundation Day of Giving


Welcome to the AFA Foundation Day of Giving!

The AFA Foundation Day of Giving is an annual social media-based, online giving, 24-hour fundraising event taking place Tuesday, June 9, 2020.
The 2020 AFA Foundation Day of Giving will operate a little differently than years past. This year, it is about those who inspire us, bring us joy, or lift us up. This day isn’t about the AFA Foundation, it is about our amazing peers and colleagues! 


Honor or Celebrate Someone on June 9

Day of Giving: Giving Hope & Celebrating Others

Even in this time of uncertainty, we have been certain of the resiliency of our amazing members and higher education partners. We understand that many of you had to cancel or postpone programs and support students virtually, and we recognize the inventive and innovative new plans you have put in place.

Over the past few months, the AFA Foundation has thought deliberately about how to best serve the association through securing, investing, and distributing the necessary resources to further the fraternity/sorority advising profession. At the core of all of this has been you.

Just as your campuses and organizations are paving new pathways forward, AFA and the AFA Foundation are doing our best to ensure the learning and connection can continue in this unconventional environment. We do this because we believe in you, in our profession, and in our future. 

Because we believe, we hope you will too.

Because, if you believe, we will be able to ensure high-quality resources, online education, continued research, scholarships, and more.

Because, if you believe, we can make our communities, fellow professionals, and future advisors the best they can be.

Because, when you believe, we have hope.

We hope you join us to leave an incredible impact.

This year, the AFA Foundation Day of Giving is about those who inspire us, bring us joy, or lift us up. We ask that because you believe, to join us in honoring our peers and colleagues that impact us, our organizations, our students, and our profession every day. As you are able, we encourage you to give $19.76 in honor of individuals who have impacted you. 

AFA and the AFA Foundation acknowledge and are sensitive to our current environments and uncertainty of what lies ahead. We know many of you have faced extreme hardships and experienced tough days, but we hope you can join us on Tuesday, June 9, either through financial donations or donations of the spirit. Your dollars and your time go towards honoring and celebrating your fellow peers and colleagues.


Day of Giving: Celebrating 1976 & Promises of Time

To celebrate our rich history, the AFA Foundation is creating a $19.76 gift amount for the Day of Giving. Every individual who was honored or celebrated with a gift during the Day of Giving will receive a message from the AFA Foundation letting them know a donation was made in their name.

We also know every cent counts and budgets are tight, so even if you are not able to join financially, we hope you are able to join us on June 9 through a promise of your time.

  • Take 5 minutes to say hi to a friend.
  • 10 minutes to check in on a mentor.
  • 20 minutes to check in on a mentee.
  • 30 minutes to connect with a professional not on your campus or in your organization.
  • 40 minutes to write notes to those who inspire you.
  • 50 minutes to thank members in your community like first responders and essential workers.
  • 60 minutes to follow up with students, especially those who need words of encouragement.

Also, use #AFAGIVES on June 9 to share how you are honoring and celebrating those who bring you hope.

If you wish to make your Day of Giving donation a recurring gift to the AFA Foundation, we will count the yearly amount towards your Annual giving level.
