National Philanthropy Day 2022

About the Event

Each year, we gather (in-person or virtually) to celebrate philanthropy in our local community. It is a chance to celebrate today the impact that philanthropy has on us all as a community. Nominations are received and a panel of judges (individuals from the community) select the annual honorees. 

The 35th Annual National Philanthropy Day, hosted by AFP Greater Madison, will take place on November 10, 2022, and will honor the people and organizations whose philanthropic efforts make our community a wonderful place to live.

What is National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day is a special day set aside to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—to the enrichment of our world.

NPD was originally conceived of and organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s, and the first official events held in 1986 after President Reagan signed the official NPD proclamation. The day provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. NPD celebrates the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.
