NPD Celebration YYC


National Philanthropy Day is celebrated across the world each November
to commend and highlight the accomplishments of individuals and groups who make a difference in their communities.

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Calgary & Area Chapter is proud to present the 23rd Annual National Philanthropy Day® Generosity of Spirit™ Awards being celebrated in Calgary, November 14th. 

This year, we honour philanthropists in five categories for their gifts of time, talent, treasure and energy to make our communities, and our world, better. These individuals and groups take small and large steps, every day, to make changes that improve the world for the people and agencies they support in numerous ways. The ripples that their efforts make have a massive impact.
