National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—have made to our lives, our communities, and our world. Since 1980 San Antonio’s Association of Fundraising Professionals has honored philanthropists, philanthropic foundations and corporations, youth in philanthropy, volunteer fundraisers, and outstanding fundraising professionals for their work in helping our friends, neighbors, and those who are unable to help themselves. We are ready to honor a new group for their work in our community for the community.

Do you know someone or an organization that should be recognized for their work in San Antonio or South Texas? Someone who has given so selflessly that their impact has been inspiring and transformational? A group that has changed someone’s lives or fixed an issue in such a way as to be uplifting and impressive? You can be the one to nominate them to be honored at our awards luncheon in November.
