Each year, the Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Tri-State Chapter (AFPGTS) honors donors and volunteers whose gifts of time, expertise, and resources make a significant contribution to the success of the nonprofit agencies and institutions they serve. Since 1960, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) has inspired global change and supported efforts that generated over $1 trillion. AFP’s nearly 30,000 individual and organizational members raise over $100 billion annually, equivalent to one-third of all charitable giving in North America and millions more around the world. Since 1986, AFP has set aside a day known as “National Philanthropy Day” to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy that enrich our world.
This year the AFPGTS Chapter will recognize and honor those persons who demonstrate strong contributions to philanthropy in our community. The National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon will be on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. This luncheon provides a unique occasion to express publicly our appreciation to those who do so much to enhance philanthropic support in our community.
