National Philanthropy Day

Help us celebrate National Philanthropy Day 2023 with AFP on November 15! 

The Nova Scotia Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) & Community Foundation of Nova Scotia are delighted to host a kick off gathering for National Philanthropy Day in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia. Join us for an engaging in-person coffee break and panel discussion, where we'll delve into how philanthropic professionals and peers are mobilizing knowledge and practices to advance inclusion, diversity, equity, and access in our field.

Recognizing the significance of moving beyond passive participation in equity learning, the goal of this conversation is to inspire action toward actively integrating and promoting these learnings within philanthropy. By wholeheartedly embedding equity and inclusion as core values in our philanthropic work, we will strengthen the social good sector's capacity to initiate enduring and impactful change.

Join us for coffee, conversation and celebration of the non-profit sector this National Philanthropy Day!
