2020 NPD Honorees


These are challenging and unpredictable times, yet we are fortunate to live in a remarkable community - a community that has come together to support one another, especially for those who have needed it most. The true testament to what makes our community extraordinary is its philanthropic heart, one that is driven by thousands of individuals and hundreds of corporations and foundations working together as donors, sponsors and volunteers to be a transformative force in shaping our world and our corner of it.

We celebrate National Philanthropy Day® because of the extraordinary impact of the charitable sector and the increasing importance philanthropic activities play in our communities. By doing so, we celebrate the spirit of philanthropy when everyone works together to “Change the World with a Giving Heart.”
