On National Philanthropy Day (November 15), the Association of Fundraising Professionals offers its thanks to everyone on the front lines for Good. Whether you are a fundraiser, a donor, a volunteer or a professional in the nonprofit sector, your empathy and compassion is testament to the inherent generosity of humankind.

AFP extends heartfelt thanks for the work you do and the world we can create together with our giving hearts. Please see our 2016 National Philanthropy Day video, produced by Blackbaud, our strategic partner.

In addition, to mark National Philanthropy Day in Canada, Governor General David Johnston sends this special message to the nation’s generous donors and the fundraising professionals.
