Welcome to the TX, Coastal Bend Chapter

Our Mission

The mission of the AFP Coastal Bend Chapter is to advance philanthropy by empowering people and organizations to practice effective and ethical fundraising.

We fulfill our mission through education and training, networking, mentoring, recognition, providing resources and advocacy.

"In recent years I have noticed that Coastal Bend nonprofit organizations are collaborating more often, they are more creative in their fund raising strategies, and they are sharing information and helping one another, rather than competing needlessly. This is a positive development, one greatly appreciated by me and many of my colleagues.”

- Mrs. Maureen Miller, Philanthropist
