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.


NPD was first celebrated in 1986.  The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is the main sponsor of NPD through its 32,000 members in more than 240 chapters across North America and around the world. Chapters work with local charitable and community organizations to hold NPD celebrations.
