National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day
Wednesday, November 18

National Philanthropy Day® is a special day in November set by the Association of Fundraising Professionals and celebrated around the world. The purpose of this day is to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—to the enrichment of our world.

Join us for National Philanthropy Day, a celebration of both the fundraising profession and those who are engaged with their community on a variety of levels.

Each year, the Hudson-Mohawk AFP Chapter board and membership nominate recipients for the annual National Philanthropy Day Awards. The awards recognize individuals, groups, and organizations that make impactful contributions to their communities, and pave the way for future philanthropic endeavors. The Hudson-Mohawk AFP Chapter is dedicated to mentoring and nurturing the spirit of philanthropy in both professional fundraisers as well as budding ones.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting an in-person event. We plan to create marketing materials highlighting the impact of our winners and releasing them via email on November 18, 2020.
