A Tribute to Those We Have Lost...
Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day, a celebration of excellence in local philanthropy, is a regional event attended by hundreds of fundraisers, community leaders, funders, philanthropists and other supporters of the nonprofit community.  This year we are introducing "In Tribute" to allow us to remember a selection of inspirational philanthropists and development professionals who have recently left us.

For this first year, we will recognize AFP SVC's past Outstanding Honorees who passed away since they received their award. In addition, we will look back at those who left us more recently.

The individual must meet all of the criteria below, unless they are a past Outstanding Honoree.

    • Development Professionals
Submission Process
