I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver

-Maya Angelou

National Philanthropy Day is celebrating everyone and every organization that makes the world of philanthropy so vital and vibrant.  Join the New York City chapter of AFP on Monday, November 20 from 8 – 10:30 am as we highlight the individuals and organizations that have made an extraordinary difference in the lives of people all around the world.  The National Philanthropy Day Breakfast is your opportunity to network among our city’s finest professionals and philanthropists from across the non-profit field.

The celebration starts with you. We’re calling on fundraisers, founders and nonprofit staff to share their stories. What is your greatest achievement in the profession and why?  What made you want to work for a nonprofit?  How important is storytelling to your organization?  What would someone find most surprising about your nonprofit?  Complete the brief survey Your NPD Story to be part of the conversation. Not only will it add a feel-good moment to your day, but you may find your story selected to be featured at the National Philanthropy Day Breakfast. All completed surveys will be entered into a drawing to receive a Starbucks gift card. 

You can film your story and send it to us directly from your smart phone – the email address is Attending Fundraising Day? Come to booth #1 and the AFP team will help you find and tell your story right there.
