National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day is a special day to recognize and pay tribute to the meaningful contributions that philanthropy — and those active in our own philanthropic community — make to our lives, communities and world. 

This year, AFP CNY will join chapters across the country and around the world on November 15 to celebrate National Philanthropy Day 2022 and honor individuals, organizations and businesses in the Central New York Area who generously give their time, talents and resources for the enrichment and benefit of our communities. Please join us in celebrating the giving spirit and exemplary leaders of our philanthropic community.
