2018 National Philanthropy Day

2018 National Philanthropy Day 2019-04-17T12:57:33-04:00

National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is a special day set aside to promote philanthropy and recognize individuals, organizations and businesses that are inspiring change through their significant impact on nonprofit organizations. Each day, generous benefactors and volunteers make a difference to people across a spectrum of nonprofit organizations from the arts to education to social services and everything in between.

The National Philanthropy Day Luncheon is our annual, signature event at which people representing businesses, nonprofits, philanthropists and volunteers come together to celebrate our vibrant philanthropic community.

All nonprofit organizations have the opportunity to participate in our Honoree process by recognizing donors, volunteers and special friends who have made a truly exceptional impact.

Thank you to everyone for a successful event!

Honorees… Celebrating Our Supporters

As part of National Philanthropy Day (NPD), the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) invites nonprofit organizations to recognize and celebrate individuals: donors, volunteers and special friends who support and further their missions.

How to Select Honorees:
During the NPD registration process, nonprofit organizations may submit the names of their Honorees – donors, volunteers and special friends. AFP requests that nonprofits submit only Honoree names of people that will be attending the luncheon. When guest names are entered, Honoree designations can be chosen. AFP will list Honoree names in the NPD program. Honoree names must be submitted to AFP by October 15, 2018 for inclusion in the program. If you need assistance in entering guest names or designating which ones are honorees, email us at Register@AFPCincinnati.org.

Nonprofit organizations are welcome and encouraged to bring other tokens of appreciation and thanks for their Honorees to present at their tables. This is a chance to express your thanks in a unique setting, no matter your budget. Even the always-appreciated handwritten notes are more meaningful on this special day.
