This annual event is an opportunity to recognize the crucial role that philanthropy plays in our society, and to celebrate the donors whose gifts make your mission possible.
Conceived of by Douglas Freeman, a lawyer with a longtime focus on philanthropy, National Philanthropy Day was first officially recognized in 1986. It’s coordinated and supported internationally by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
More than three decades later, National Philanthropy Day is still the perfect time to thank your supporters, champion your organization’s important work, and showcase your planned giving program. Honoring the individuals, organizations and businesses in your region that give so generously of their time, talents, and resources for the benefit of your organization’s mission is an integral component of an effective donor stewardship program.
But November might as well be called “National Philanthropy Month.” After all, there’s Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) and Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29) to consider as well. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as “a day that encourages people to do good.”
And when you tie in National Estate Planning Week (Oct. 17-23), it makes the first two full months of fall an indispensable time to touch base with your supporters!
