National Philanthropy Day will celebrate its 35th year of honoring those in Palm Beach County who are "changing the world with a giving heart." This past year, philanthropy has played a critical role during these unprecedented times. From providing food and shelter for our neighbors in the Bahamas, keeping our community safe during the pandemic, and taking a stand for social justice; many have made a lasting mark. Join us on Thursday, November 12 as we honor the individuals, corporations, and foundations who gave their time, talent, and resources to transform an idea into someone's positive future.

We are now taking submission for nominations for this year's National Philanthropy Day Celebration. Forms can be found here and must be submitted by September 25th to be considered. 

Students can also apply for our Youth in Philanthropy scholarship here. Those applications are due by September 25th.

Would you like to be a sponsor of this year's virtual event? Contact Kris Lidinsky for more information and check out the opportunities here. 

We look forward to celebrating with you!

Your event co-chairs,

Kris Lidinsky & Sarah Turner
