Our Mission

The American Fundraising Foundation improves people’s lives by raising vitally needed funds for worthy nonprofits, at no cost to those nonprofits.

The Foundation of our Foundation

The American Fundraising Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation raising funds for other nonprofits. For more than 17 years, former television news anchors, Barbara and Wade West have helped critically needed charities, hospitals, hospices, animal shelters, and other deserving national and community based organizations obtain the financial resources to accomplish their missions. Not all nonprofits qualify for this unrestricted financial support, but when they do, the contributions from AFF help in so many ways.

“I want to thank American Fundraising for all you did to make our auction a success. The trips were essential. Your group is very easy to work with as well as very professional. We look forward to working with you again next year.”
