National Philanthropy Day is a special day to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy — and those active in our own philanthropic community — make to our lives, communities and world. This year, AFP Golden Gate will join chapters across the country and around the world on November 13 to present National Philanthropy Day 2020 virtually, and honor individuals, organizations and businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area who generously give their time, talents and resources for the enrichment and benefit of our communities. Please join us in celebrating the giving spirit and exemplary leaders of our philanthropic community.

The event will broadcast at 11:00 am starting with the awards ceremony and follow at 12:00 pm with a forum featuring an interactive panel discussion with select honorees sharing a deeper perspective on current affairs in fundraising and philanthropy.
