You are cordially invited to attend
Each year, the Association of Fundraising Professionals —
Golden Gate marks one special day in November to
celebrate the spirit of giving. On this day, more than 800 people
convene to recognize individuals and institutions whose exemplary
contributions to philanthropy advance the common good
in a rich variety of ways throughout northern California.
Started in 1986, National Philanthropy Day honors the
extraordinary impact that philanthropy — and those involved in
the philanthropic process — have made in communities across
North America and around the world. More than a million people
have participated in NPD celebrations since its inception, and
events are now held in more than 125 communities world-wide.
