Distinguished Volunteers

A Distinguished Volunteer is one that directly contributes to your organization's success.  One who inspires you with their passion and motivation for your cause.  Perhaps they're a board member that always goes the extra mile - closing the gap on donations or always willing to do what they can to help out.  The National Philanthropy Day Dinner celebrates them, their commitment to your organization and philanthropy as a whole! 

Congratulations to the 2019 Distinguished Volunteers!
