NPD 2023


National Philanthropy Day 2023
The purpose of National Philanthropy Day is to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy and those people active in the philanthropic community to the enrichment of our world.
NPD was originally conceived and organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s, and the first official events were 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.

This year, National Philanthropy Day will be celebrated on Thursday, November 16, 2023, at 5 pm at the Museum of Commerce, Downtown Pensacola.
