AFP Golden Gate NPD Nov 15 2019

Held November 15, 2019
11:00 am to 1:30 pm
The Fairmont San Francisco Hotel, 950 Mason Street, San Francisco 94108

National Philanthropy Day is always a special day to recognize the great contributions that philanthropy—and those active in the philanthropic community—make to individual lives, communities, and the larger world. The 2019 celebration was a wonderful day with nearly 600 attendees representing almost 200 organizations. We celebrated, and learned from, inspirational Bay Area individuals, organizations, and businesses that generously offer their time, talents, and resources in philanthropic spirit and practice. Thank you to all who attended the luncheon, and those who attended the Morning NPD Forum as well. For photos and the NPD program booklet, see NPD Archives. Links to the Honoree videos are there as well. The date for NPD 2020 in November will be set by the end of February.
