National Philanthropy Day® is a special day set aside on the 15th of November to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy, and those people active in the philanthropic community, to the enrichment of our world.
National Philanthropy Day® provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. First held in 1986, National Philanthropy Day® celebrates the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.
National Philanthropy Day®, which is registered with the Patent and Trademark Office, U.S. Department of Commerce, is coordinated by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
By promoting this day, the philanthropic community becomes stronger and each individual voice is equally important on this day of recognition and reflection.
