National Philanthropy Day
Each year, National Philanthropy Day (NPD) on Vancouver Island provides an opportunity to gather to celebrate the generosity of our community and learn new skills to apply to the philanthropic sector. In the past, we have shared in our celebration and professional development through three events: the National Philanthropy Day Awards Ceremony, Masterclass, and Youth Session.
We have adapted National Philanthropy Day 2021 to provide the Vancouver Island community with an opportunity to highlight outstanding acts of philanthropy, learn from one another, and celebrate together during these uncertain times, while protecting the health and safety of everyone.
The Giving Hearts Awards are back!
Starting September 14th, community members can tune into CTV Vancouver Island from 5pm - 6pm every Tuesday and follow AFP’s social media channels as we countdown to National Philanthropy Day on November 15th by announcing a new recipient each week.
Join us as we recognize the outstanding acts of individuals, groups, and organizations that have responded to the needs of our community in unique and generous ways. Check out last weeks interview here.
