Loyal Donors… Celebrating Our Supporters

As part of National Philanthropy Day (NPD), the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) invites nonprofit organizations to recognize and celebrate additional individuals: loyal donors who support and further the mission of their organization.

How to Select Loyal Donors: During the NPD registration process, nonprofit organizations may submit the names of their Loyal Donors. AFP requests that nonprofits submit only the names of people who will be attending the in-person event. When guest names are sent, Loyal Donor designations can be noted at that time.

If you need assistance in submitting guest names or designating your guests as Loyal Donors, email us at

For questions or more information, contact:
