28th Annual National Philanthropy Day® 
Wednesday, November 6, 2019
 at The Henry in Dearborn

National Philanthropy Day is the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Detroit Chapter’s premier event, to celebrate and honor the passion, commitment and leadership of Southeastern Michigan’s philanthropists, distinguished volunteers and those in the fundraising profession.

Thank you for another successful event in 2019! The AFP Greater Detroit Chapter had more than 640 attendees come together to witness and celebrate the positive impact of giving back.

Distinguished Volunteers
A Distinguished Volunteer is one that directly contributes to your organization’s success.  One who inspires you with their passion and motivation for your cause.  Perhaps they’re a board member that always goes the extra mile – closing the gap on donations or always willing to do what they can to help out.  The National Philanthropy Day Dinner celebrates them, their commitment to your organization and philanthropy as a whole!
