NPD Manual

October 5, 2015

The National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) Manual is designed to help AFP chapters plan for their annual NPD event. Whether your chapter has held NPD events for many years or is just beginning its NPD tradition, the manual contains numerous tools, tips and guidelines gathered over the past 25 years.

At the bottom of this page in the Attachments section is a PDF document containing the entire manual.

The manual contains sections on planning, committees, types of activities, logistics, schedules, awards and media relations. The manual has been expanded and enhanced from previous editions and full of advice from chapters across North America.

AFP's Public Affairs Department hopes that this NPD manual is helpful as you begin to develop your program for this year. If you have any questions or problems, contact the AFP Public Affairs Department at
