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. Since 1980 San Antonio’s Association of Fundraising Professionals has honored philanthropists, philanthropic foundations and corporations, youth in philanthropy, volunteer fundraisers, and outstanding fundraising professionals for their work in helping our friends, neighbors, and those who are unable to help themselves. We are ready to honor a new group for their work in our community.
