The 2012 Awards for Philanthropy - Presented by the Association of Fundraising Professionals


Each year, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) honors individuals and organizations that, through their tireless work and dedication to philanthropy, have improved the quality of life in their communities and around the world. Recipients of the Awards for

Philanthropy are nominated for demonstrating outstanding commitment and leadership in all aspects of philanthropy. AFP recognizes these outstanding honorees that embody the true meaning of philanthropy—the love of humankind. 

AFP’s 2012 honorees, announced this year on Nov. 15, National Philanthropy Day, include: 

These individuals and organizations will be honored at AFP’s Celebration of Philanthropy on March 31, 2012, during its International Conference on Fundraising in Vancouver, British Columbia.

"Each of these honorees has chosen to make a difference in the world by getting involved and motivating to join with them in pursuit of their noble causes," said Andrew Watt, FInstF, president and CEO of AFP. "They are the epitome of philanthropy—love of humankind—and serve as our role models, inspiring us to follow in their footsteps. I congratulate them all and look forward to honoring them in Vancouver at our conference next year."

The awards are being announced on National Philanthropy Day®, sponsored by VISA, which involves more than 50,000 people in nearly 100 communities across North America, coming together to celebrate the impact of giving, volunteering and engagement. NPD events involve the honoring of local philanthropists, and a complete list of events, as well as more information about philanthropy and wise giving, can be found on the official National Philanthropy Day® website.
