National Philanthropy Day Awards Celebration


National Philanthropy Day in Victoria will take place on November 16, 2018

National Philanthropy Day is an event started by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 1986. National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is celebrated around the world as a day to recognize the work of charities and remember the extraordinary achievements that philanthropy-giving, volunteering and social engagement-has made in all aspects of life. In Canada, NPD is recognized on November 15 as a national day.

In Victoria, we will celebrate NPD with a number of events, including the NPD reception and awards ceremony on November 16th at the Victoria Conference Centre. In addition, NPD will include a Master Session for fundraising professionals and a youth session called the Agents of Change.
