National Philanthropy Day


National Philanthropy Day

In November each year, AFP DC celebrates National Philanthropy Day to honor the charitable work that everyone does to make a difference and create impact in our greater Washington, DC area community.

As part of the celebration, we call out and award two special and accomplished outstanding fundraisers and philanthropists.

The chapter has been celebrating National Philanthropy Day since 1986, when then-US President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation recognizing November 15 as National Philanthropy Day in the U.S.

NPD celebrates the endless contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.
