Bonny will match dollar for dollar gifts up to $1,500 to fund the Mid-Career Seminar at the #AFAAM. Your gifts, plus Bonny’s match, will equal $3,000 for mid-career education!

The RISE Challenge


For the second year, RISE Partnerships will support the AFA Foundation through a gift of $50 for every new recurring gift that is established on the Day of Giving, up to 30 new recurring gifts. These gifts can be restricted or unrestricted per the new recurring gift donors intent.

The Catalyst Challenge


The Catalyst Agency is partnering with the Foundation for a second year in providing a challenge for new donors! The Catalyst Agency will match each new gift, dollar for dollar, up to $1,500 on the Day of Giving. This challenge allows you to double the impact of your first gift to the AFA Foundation!

The AFAF Board Challenge


The AFA Foundation Board is challenging all previous donors who have not yet made a gift during the 2019 fiscal year (September 1, 2018- June 6, 2019). Members of the AFA Foundation Board will give $50 for every gift received from a previous donor, up to 60 gifts. This is the ideal time to make your gift to the AFA Foundation!

Why I Give

  • Nicki Rowlett - Nicki Rowlett's first gift to the AFA Foundation was in 2013 at her first Annual Meeting. Now, she serves as the Region Director for Region 3. Nicki chose to support AFA’s Inaugural Day of Giving because “The more experience I have in our industry, the more I realize how valuable a monetary gift is to an organization, and how it can help elevate the membership experience for the future. Seeing a how this "full circle thinking" came from my experience in fraternity/sorority life, I wanted to give back to the industry in hopes to start that cycle for someone else.” #AFAGIVES


  • Shane Taylor - Shane Taylor began donating to AFA in 2014. “I participated in the Graduate Training Track in 2014 and the New Professionals Institute in 2016. These two experiences really set a solid foundation for me as a professional because I was able to learn from seasoned professionals in the field about the in and outs of being an excellent advisor for collegiate students at any institution.” Shane credits AFA for making the professional he is today and AFA’s investment in him. #AFAGIVES

Day of Giving FAQs

For more about the 2019 AFA Foundation Day of Giving, please view the frequently asked questions below:

Q. Is there a minimum gift amount?

For gifts processed through our Day of Giving platform, the minimum gift amount is $10. 


Q. Can I designate My Gift? 

Absolutely! You can choose from among many giving opportunities or challenges. What matters most is that you make a gift. Simply choose your designation under “Donation” on the online giving page. There is also a selection option for “Other.” If you don’t wish to prioritize a specific challenge, you may donate to the unrestricted fund, which allocates your donation to an area of greatest need.


Q. What else can I do to participate in the Day of Giving?

Q. How do I set up a recurring gift?

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. That means a recurring gift of $17 per month will put you in the 1976 Club. When filling out your donation form, please make this designation.


Q. How can I find out my lifetime giving to the Foundation? 

Please email Carrie Whittier if you would like to know your lifetime giving before making your Day of Giving gift!

Yes. Your gift is tax-deductible to the AFA Foundation as a 501(c)3 charitable organization and will help support the educational programs for the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors.
