The highlight of this event is the presentation of our philanthropy awards, celebrating those individuals and organizations in our community who exemplify a level of caring, commitment and contribution that some equal, but few exceed.

Invite your board members, volunteers and supporters to join you for the National Philanthropy Day evening reception as AFP recognizes the people and organizations that go the extra mile in our community.Registration is now open.
