National Philanthropy Day - Nov. 13th, 2012
Idaho Awards for Philanthropy
National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) is a special day set aside in November to recognize and celebrate the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions. Last year, more than 125 AFP Chapters held NPD events across North America.
Since 1996, the AFP-Idaho Chapter has hosted a NPD breakfast event each November to honor the work of Idaho businesses, nonprofits, volunteers and donors. Approximately 200 people join the Chapter each year to celebrate the achievements of nominated award and honor roll recipients, known as the Idaho “Heroes in Philanthropy.”
In addition to the NPD breakfast event, AFP-Idaho Chapter has partnered with the Idaho Business Review (IBR) to create and distribute a special “Idaho Philanthropy” publication in November that highlights the corporate/nonprofit relationship; explores innovative and creative programs and services nonprofits are developing to sustain their business; features a "Guide to Giving" nonprofit directory; and pays tribute to the Idaho Heroes in Philanthropy.
