National Philanthropy Day was founded in 1986 by presidential proclamation of the Association of Fundraising Professionals to recognize charitable giving in all its forms. AFPKC celebrates this day locally with an annual special event honoring Kansas City individuals and companies that embody the spirit of philanthropy.
This year's celebration will be on November 12. Details are forthcoming.
