Celebration of Philanthropy

In 2022, we are looking forward to another year of philanthropic success and recognition!

2021: We had much to celebrate!

Rediscover Your Relationships

As we are slowly becoming comfortable with gathering in person, we hope the luncheon will help reignite our existing relationships as fundraising professionals, while creating new ones.
Over the past year, as we rediscovered different aspects of our life and entered into a "new normal", we also rediscovered our relationships in this sector and to how to be more diverse and inclusive to include fundraisers of nonprofits of various sizes, fundraisers of color, gender, age, social economic status and more.

The National Philanthropy Day Celebration event is both an opportunity to celebrate and recognize individuals and organizations that make our communities better, as well as raise critical funds to support the AFP Greater Arizona Chapter through scholarships, education and connection opportunities.
