National Philanthropy Day

Save the Date! National Philanthropy Day will be held on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

National Philanthropy Day® is an annual event presented nationwide by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. NPD is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities and our world. Awards given recognize the leaders in the community who make a true impact on the quality of life, cultural vibrancy, and fabric of the region.

The Association of Fundraising Professionals Central Virginia Chapter has proudly hosted National Philanthropy Day for over 25 years to celebrate the region's philanthropic spirit.
Since 1996, Central Virginia’s AFP Chapter has
honored philanthropists, businesses, and volunteers for their impact in Central Virginia and beyond.

In an effort to make our event more inclusive and accessible to organizations of all sizes and budgets, we have changed the event format from a seated event to a reception. Nominators will not be required to purchase tables, and instead will receive 4 tickets to be used for the nominating organization, the honoree, and guests.

Nominations are now open and being accepted through August 1, 2022. Submit your nomination today!
