Celebrating Giving Hearts in our Community

National Philanthropy Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the daily impact generosity has on our community. First held in 1986, this internationally recognized day celebrates the heartfelt contributions individuals and organizations make to countless causes and missions across the world.

On Vancouver Island, National Philanthropy Day is put on by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Vancouver Island. Please join us for one or more of the inspiring National Philanthropy Day sessions and be part of our community’s largest celebration of giving!
