As fundraisers, and a community united around a world of good actions, we come together each year to celebrate philanthropy in the greater Madison area. Each November we gather at Overture Center for the Arts for National Philanthropy Day, a luncheon and awards celebration honoring community champions for their unique contributions and dedication to nonprofit causes. Through the inspiring and heartwarming stories of our award recipients, we share the power of philanthropy with a sell-out crowd. You won't want to miss this remarkable event!
