Each year the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) honors individuals, groups, organizations and businesses who, through their hard work and dedication, have enhanced philanthropy, their communities and the world.

We celebrate National Philanthropy Day® because of the extraordinary impact of the charitable sector and the increasing importance philanthropic activities play in our communities.
