National Philanthropy Day

About National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day is a special day set aside each year on the 15th of November to uphold the great contributions of philanthropy – and to recognize those who are active in the philanthropic community.

Each year AFP honours the individuals, community groups and businesses who have enhanced philanthropy and their communities through hard work, dedication and leadership. Our 2023 annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon was held in Hamilton on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 and completely sold out.
