National Philanthropy Day

We are looking forward to this year’s National Philanthropy Day on Thursday, November 3rd at the Topeka Country Club when we will acknowledge the spirit of generous giving in our community.

We ask you to be a part of it by helping to: 

    • Sponsor this special annual event or
    • Nominate an individual or an organization for a 2022 philanthropy award 

This year we will honor Ford and Catherine Ross with the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Topeka Council on Philanthropy (AFP-TCOP) 2022 Philanthropic Leadership Award.

National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is a day set aside to rejoice in giving and to recognize exceptional individuals and organizations that make an impact in our community. Registration and networking will begin at 11:30 a.m. Our award program lunch will begin 12 noon.
