2021 National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day


National Philanthropy Day
is a special opportunity to recognize the significance of philanthropic contributions in our lives, communities and world.  This year, AFP Greater San Fernando Valley Chapter hosted National Philanthropy Day on Thursday, November 4, 2021, and honored individuals, organizations, and businesses in the North Los Angeles area who generously gave their time, talents, and resources for the enrichment and benefit of our communities. Thank you to all of the honorees: Milton Valera, Bradley Grose, the Bank of America Foundation, California Lutheran Home & Community Services, Nancy Ackerman, CFRE, and Alexander, Jonathon, and Nathan Patrus. Thank you for doing a world of good! Special recognition also goes out to CSUN for being our Host Sponsor and for the incredible venue they provided for our event!
