National Philanthropy Day
Join us for the 2017 National Philanthropy Day! The date is not determined yet but if it's anything like last year you will go away feeling inspired and prepared for anything!
The North Alabama Chapter of AFP holds a Philanthropy Day Seminar each year and brings in nationally recognized speakers such as Penelope Burke and Marcie Heim. These speakers bring great wisdom and humor to an often thankless profession while inspiring fundraisers to ENJOY what we do!
At our Philanthropy Day seminars we enjoy our speaker for several hours, a luncheon and we present our Philanthropy Day awards which include Philanthropy Hero, Non-Profit of the Year and Fundraiser of the Year.
You do not have to be a member of our local chapter to attend this seminar or to nominate someone for our awards. Watch this page for information on who will be our speaker, how to nominate a deserving person or organization, or how to register for the seminar!
And join us for our monthly chapter meetings and webinars. Just check our events calendar for more information.
