National Philanthropy Day 2022

If you're like me,  your inbox is probably full of fundraising guru newsletters, nonprofit strategy webinars and donor relations mavens all of whom seem to be preaching the same thing: Stewardship & Cultivation!

And what better way to steward and cultivate your organization's champions than by nominating them for a National Philanthropy Day (NPD) award.  There's never been a better time to reach out to the donors and volunteers whose giving hearts positively impact your organization's mission. The nomination deadline is Friday, April 22nd, so there is still time to uplift the good happening in our community. 

Visit the website for details and to submit your nomination. Contact Megan Mitcham for more information.
