National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day (NPD), provides us the opportunity to recognize those members of our community who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to leadership in philanthropy and volunteerism in Broward County. As fundraisers, and a community united around a world of good actions, we come together each year to celebrate philanthropy in Broward County. Each November we gather at for National Philanthropy Day,  a luncheon and awards celebration honoring community champions for their unique contributions and dedication to nonprofit causes. 

For the second year, NPD will be a fabulous virtual celebration. Join us on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 for a very special celebration of our 2021 honorees presented by The Frederick A. DeLuca Foundation ! This unique, virtual event will offer a special way to celebrate from afar with enhanced digital recognition of this year’s honorees.

Through the inspiring and heartwarming stories of our award recipients, we share the power of philanthropy with a sell-out crowd. You won't want to miss this remarkable event.
