The Association of Fundraising Professionals – Alabama Chapter (AFP Alabama) invites the community to submit nominations for the 2018 National Philanthropy Day, a celebration of philanthropy and philanthropists.
Since 1982, AFP Alabama has participated in National Philanthropy Day as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the generous spirit of our community. The event has grown from a few honorees at a small gathering to a sold-out annual luncheon celebrating honorees in seven categories and 15 VIPs (Volunteers in Philanthropy).
