National Philanthropy Day™ (NPD), celebrating 31 years of philanthropy in the Shenandoah Valley, is a special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities, and our world.
The Shenandoah Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals has awarded Philanthropist of the Year awards annually since 1991. These awards honor outstanding philanthropists who demonstrate exceptional charitable acts and civic responsibility in our region. Their generosity encourages others to engage in philanthropic activities and to seek leadership roles in our communities.
