VERO BEACH — The Association of Fundraising Professionals, Indian River Chapter (AFP-IR) recently named Peggy Gibbs the 2010 Chamberlain Scholar.  Ms. Gibbs is the Development Manager for the Indian River Habitat for Humanity.

Annually, AFP-IR sends a chapter-nominated Chamberlain Scholar to the AFP International Conference. The nominee must be a fundraiser who has never attended an AFP Conference.

Sponsored by the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy, the Chamberlain Scholarship honors the memory of Ralph E. Chamberlain, CFRE, a founding member of the Greater New York Chapter and a longtime supporter of the Foundation.
