National Philanthropy Month

This year National Philanthropy Day celebrates 34 years! This 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. AFPGV honored its first philanthropists in 1998.

While this ongoing pandemic has forced us to make the difficult decision to cancel our annual luncheon, it will not stop us from celebrating the spirit of giving and everyone who has contributed to Rochester's philanthropic community. This year we will be highlighting all of our past winners during the month of November! Be on the lookout for photos, videos, social media shout outs and more all month.

Taking a look back at the NPD honorees throughout the years!
Watch the videos here as they are released on social media!
