About National Philanthropy Day®
National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities and our world.
When NPD was first celebrated in 1986, then-President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation officially recognizing Nov. 15, 1986, as National Philanthropy Day®. Since then, the day has been recognized by numerous state, provincial and local governments across North America.
The NPD awards program has honored some of the most innovative individuals and organizations in philanthropy (e.g., James Michener, Dorothy and J.B. Fuqua, Dr. Robert Pamplin, Jr., The Kresge Foundation and The Lilly Endowment, to name just a few). AFP chapters nominate their local NPD honorees for AFP’s international awards program, and the winners are recognized at AFP’s annual International Conference on Fundraising.
