National Philanthropy Day

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 and our local communities. Each day, generous benefactors and volunteers make a difference to people across a spectrum of nonprofit organizations from the arts to education to social services and everything in between.

It is a great privilege of the Upper Mississippi Valley Association of Fundraising Professionals and Trust Point to recognize the remarkable service of this year’s honorees.

We are honored to be able to celebrate their selfless acts of love, compassion and making our communities a better place to live
