There are many fun and rewarding ways you can get involved with GPF. Feel free to contact us with any specific questions or ideas on how you would like to support the grant profession. We are continually looking for dedicated grant professionals and fundraisers to expand awareness of the work of the Foundation and its partner organizations, the Grant Professionals Association and the Grant Professionals Certification Institute.

The Foundation is a national not-for-profit organization, and volunteers are vital to our current and future success in serving the needs of grant professionals across the United States.

2023 GPF Board


The GPF relies 100% on volunteers, like you! We’re always looking to add great talent to our board. We have a number of committees and taskforces that all contribute to our mission. Together we can impact the lives of people in our communities by ensuring that resources are available to train, credential and advocate for those grant professionals who serve and strengthen non-profits.

GPF Giving Clubs

Giving Clubs

In 2022, GPF established 5+ and 10+ giving clubs to recognize and celebrate Grant Professionals who have 5 or 10 more years of dedicated membership in GPA. Through their generous donations of $50 or $100 (to represent the number of membership years), these amazing supporters are changing lives and communities through education, credentialing and advocacy for Grant Professionals.
