2019 National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon


National Philanthropy Day is celebrated globally every year in November and honours those whose philanthropy, volunteerism and leadership have motivated their communities to be the best they can be.


Our 2019 event was inspiring, heartfelt and a whole lot of fun!!


One of our honourees shared her motivation for giving:

"One of the most joyful discoveries of life is in comforting another person as we find ourselves comforted too."
