Held annually worldwide in November, National Philanthropy Day® is a nationally-recognized day in Canada. To celebrate this important day, the AFP-Canada South Chapter, and other AFP Chapters worldwide, annually host a National Philanthropy Day Awards Ceremony. This event publicly pays tribute to the many contributions that philanthropy – and the individuals and groups who are active in the philanthropic community have made to our lives and our community.
National Philanthropy Day® is both an official day and a grassroots movement. Every year, since 1986 when President Ronald Reagan first proclaimed November 15th as National Philanthropy Day®, communities across the globe have celebrated by hosting events to recognize activities of donors, volunteers, foundations, leaders, corporations, and others engaged in philanthropy.
In 2012, the nation of Canada officially recognized NPD permanently, setting a new model for other countries to emulate.
