2023-24 Sponsorship Opportunities


National Philanthropy Day (NPD) acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society. Each year, AFP chapters around the nation honor individuals and groups who, through their hard work and dedication, have enhanced philanthropy, their communities, and 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.

Sponsors of National Philanthropy Day gain visibility and increased brand awareness through logo and material presence at the event, and in media outreach and materials.
