National Philanthropy Day 2023

A Day of Giving

Tuesday, November 14th, 2023

National Philanthropy Day is a special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the impact of philanthropy in the world around us. It's a day to honor those people active in the philanthropic community who have made our lives, our communities, and our world a better place. National Philanthropy Day, or NPD, celebrates the charitable work that EVERYONE does to make a difference and create an impact in their communities.

For more than 20 years, the South Carolina Lowcountry Chapter has gathered on National Philanthropy Day to honor remarkable achievements by local individuals, foundations, and corporate philanthropists who work in collaboration with nonprofit organizations. Come join us as we gather to honor the dynamic philanthropic community that has formed to impact every part of the Lowcountry.
