National Philanthropy Day®

Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Individual tickets will go on sale late-summer.

Event and Table Sponsorships are now available.

 

Since 1992, members and the Board of the Central Ohio Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) have publicly recognized local philanthropic leaders and celebrated the impact in our community through National Philanthropy Day (NPD)®. This year, as in years past, we look forward to having the distinct honor of paying tribute to the change makers in our community.

 

This day of recognition of personal and corporate impact is the highlight of our chapter’s witness to the broader community.  It celebrates the unique partnership of donor and fundraiser. The National Philanthropy Day luncheon has become the highly anticipated ‘event to attend’ in Columbus during November, the traditional month of giving thanks, and is one of the largest in the nation.

 

National Philanthropy Day was originally conceived of and organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s, and the first official events held in 1986 after President Reagan signed the 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.
