National Philanthropy Day

Thank you for joining us on October 15, 2021 as we celebrated the diverse forms and faces of philanthropy in Minnesota. National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is a special day set aside to promote philanthropy and recognize individuals, organizations and businesses that are inspiring change through their significant impact on nonprofit organizations. The NPD Program is our annual, signature event at which people representing businesses, nonprofits, philanthropists, and volunteers come together to celebrate our vibrant philanthropic community.
