NATIONAL PHILANTHROPY DAY EVENTS

National Philanthropy Day
in Eastern Iowa recognizes the people and organizations generous with their time and funding for the enrichment of our community, state and world. This year in eastern Iowa, National Philanthropy Day will be recognized on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 at the Courtyard by Marriott Iowa City University Heights & The Heights Rooftop Event Center.

On this special day we not only honor those doing amazing work in philanthropy with an Awards Luncheon, but we also offer a day of education. The speaker and schedule will be announced soon. Check back
for all the details. In the meantime, check out photos and details from last year's celebration!

If you are interested in becoming part of the action, there are many ways to get involved.  Honorees don't just come out of the thin blue air. It takes people to nominate them. This is a key and valuable part of the process. Nominations will be open soon and we very much look forward to your nominations and stories. Please consider nominating someone this year. See the categories and 2021 honorees below.

The events of the day can only happen because of the amazing group of NPD committee members who put in valuable time and energy. Do you want to join that team? If so, please email the NPD committee chair, Sarah Halbrook, today at shalbrook@indiancreeknaturecenter.org.
