AFR stands for Administrative and Fundraising Rate, and it is listed with an organization's description in CFC materials. The AFR represents the percentage of donation dollars that are spent on administration costs; essentially, the overhead costs of an organization. For example, if a charity has an AFR of 8%, 8 cents of every received dollar covers the administrative overhead costs while the remaining 92 cents goes to services provided by the organization.
