Honoring the leaders who inspire us


AFP Advancement Northwest continues the Northwest Development Officers Association (NDOA)’s longstanding tradition of honoring one fundraising professional each year who exemplifies the highest standards of ethics, achievement and commitment. Recipients of the Professional Achievement Award have included development directors, executive directors, major gift officers and consultants. All share a commitment to mentoring others; walking the talk of philanthropy through community service and raising funds for important mission-based organizations; and the embodiment of integrity, professionalism and excellence.
