Each year, the Florida First Coast Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) honors donors, volunteers and professionals whose gifts of time, expertise and resources contribute significantly to the quality of life in our communities. This year’s National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Jacksonville.

National Philanthropy Day acknowledges the entire spectrum of services that the nonprofit and civic and service sectors provide, as well as the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society. This annual event is also a fundraiser for the Florida First Coast Chapter of the AFP to provide scholarships and educational opportunities to further individual members’ professional development. NPD was originally conceived of and organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s, and the first official events held in 1986 after President Reagan signed the official NPD proclamation. The day provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. NPD celebrates the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.

Last year, more than 130 AFP chapters held NPD events and activities across North America. In addition, AFP launched #NPDLove and the NPDLove.com website, a global social media outreach and awareness campaign to engage the global charitable sector, the philanthropic community, and the public in activities to demonstrate “love of humankind” and highlight how they (or their organization) are helping to change the world.
