About the Event

The impact of philanthropy in Manitoba is profound.

As fundraising professionals, we join together to promote thoughtful and effective philanthropy in our province. One way we demonstrate the impact of our important work is through celebrating National Philanthropy Day by presenting the Manitoba Philanthropy Awards. 

The wonderful stories of our recipients allow us to share the power of philanthropy to our community and to recognize them for their time, commitment and passion for their cause.

Nomination forms are now available for the 2020 Manitoba Philanthropy Awards!

Now accepting proposals for event videography. Click here to review AFP Manitoba's Request for Proposals.
Deadline: May 31, 2020.

Thank you to our outstanding sponsors!

“Manitoba is the most generous province in our country and it is important we pause to recognize the generosity of time and talent that makes this so. National Philanthropy Day gives us the opportunity to step back from our day-to-day work and acknowledge the contributions that help make our city and province the best it can be.”
