The 2014 National Philanthropy Day (NPD) Luncheon is on Thursday, November 13. The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) proudly holds this annual event to recognize outstanding community members who inspire change in our community through generously supporting area nonprofit organizations. Registration is now open and will be solely online this year.
We look forward to introducing you to this year’s award winners at NPD: Philanthropists of the Year – Barbara and Larry Kellar; Volunteer of the Year – H. Richard Duval; and Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy – Magnified Giving Student Philanthropy Program.
Additionally, NPD gives all nonprofits a unique opportunity to thank their own Nonprofit Champions - benefactors and volunteers who impact their organizations. When registering to attend NPD, indicate which of your guests are Nonprofit Champions. They will be listed in the NPD program and AFP will provide certificates of recognition for them, which will be available for pick-up at NPD. Keynote Speaker, Erin Gruwell’s book, can be pre-ordered as thank you gifts for your Champions, and nonprofits are encouraged to bring their own tokens of appreciation to present at NPD.
National Philanthropy Day is possible due only to our generous sponsors. NPD sponsorship supports our entire nonprofit community by providing AFP with funding to hold educational programs and networking events to benefit development professionals, nonprofit executive directors and board members, and others who attend our sessions. Sponsorship also allows all of us to come together – business, philanthropists, nonprofits and volunteers – at NPD to celebrate our community’s strong philanthropic spirit.
