History

The AFP Allegheny Mountains Chapter serves counties in the Johnstown-Altoona-State College region and beyond.  The chapter was chartered in 2001 and has been recognized as an AFP Ten Star Chapter in each year of its existence.  It is regularly cited by AFP International as one of its leading chapters and a model for other smaller chapters (those with fewer than 50 members) to emulate.  The Chapter sponsors a number of workshops each year including its annual National Philanthropy Day Workshop and Awards.
