Crowne Plaza Hotel, Ventura

Our local AFP Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties Chapter was founded 32 years ago to promote philanthropy and support the practice of ethical and effective fundraising. We do this through education, networking, mentoring, advocacy, and recognition. Our chapter is run by a board of directors featuring the counties’ top fundraising professionals and hosts a variety of educational trainings throughout the year. For more information about our chapter, please click HERE.

Your partnership with AFPSBV enables us to celebrate philanthropy in our communities, continue innovative educational opportunities for fundraisers and nonprofit professionals, and provides scholarships for AFP membership, trainings, and educational conferences.

Why should I Sponsor?


1.jpg    National Philanthropy Day (NPD) acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and        
    recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society. Each year, AFP chapters around the nation honor

    individuals and groups who, through their hard work and dedication, have enhanced philanthropy, their communities, and the world.

    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 an 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.

    The purpose of this day is to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic
    community—to the enrichment of our world.

    The event will honor a recipient from each of the following categories: Philanthropist of the Year in Ventura and Santa Barbara
    Counties, Volunteer of the Year in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, Youth in Philanthropy and Professional Fundraiser
    of the Year.
