National Philanthropy Day is a special day in November. The purpose of this day is to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy and those people active in the Greater Rochester 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.

Last year, more than 130 AFP chapters held NPD events and activities across North America. In addition, AFP launched #NPDLove and the NPDLove.com website, a global social media outreach and awareness campaign to engage the global charitable sector, the philanthropic community, and the public in activities to demonstrate love of humankind and highlight how they (or their organization) are helping to change the world.

The Rochester region celebrates National Philanthropy Day on the first Friday of November at a community wide gathering hosted by the Genesee Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. We are excited for this years event! Please save the date!
