National Philanthropy Day will be celebrated virtually on
Thursday, November 18, 2021 at noon.
National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the Charlotte nonprofit community and recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of our society. 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. National Philanthropy Day® is celebrated by more than 125 communities and 50,000 people around the world will participate in NPD events and celebrations.
The AFP Charlotte Chapter has hosted National Philanthropy Day® Awards luncheon for more than 15 years. Over 500 of Charlotte's top business leaders, foundations, charities and individuals come together to celebrate the vibrant philanthropic community that has an impact on every corner in Charlotte.
