Volunteers in Philanthropy


How will you recognize your organization's most appreciated supporter?

It's always nice to show appreciation to your best supporters. The National Philanthropy Day Volunteer in Philanthropy (VIP) Award is a fantastic way to do just that! This event honors the kind and generous individuals amongst us here in Birmingham! There's no nomination process - just an impactful way to show your appreciation and recognition for your special VIP!

For $650, your VIP receives:

  • Recognition as an exceptional Volunteer in Philanthropy at the AFP Alabama National Philanthropy Day Awards event with an estimated 400 attendees. Recognition is limited to the first 10 organizations to sign up.
  • VIP Table of 8 for the in-person event.
  • Recognition in the Birmingham Business Journal including a photo, bio, and organization information.
  • Recognition on the AFP Alabama website as a VIP.
  • Professional photo with the award, to be taken at the event.
  • Recognition through AFP’s social media that you can share through your social media.
  • An original hand-forged iron statuette made by a local artist.
  • Community-wide recognition for the VIP and your organization.
