National Philanthropy Day 2017

National Philanthropy Day, or NPD, celebrates the charitable work that EVERYONE does to make a difference and create impact in their communities. Whether you’re a donor or a volunteer (or both!), young or old, no matter how much you give or what causes you support—what you do from the heart makes a difference! And you make a difference every day! Your generosity and commitment doesn’t take time off. NPD is recognized on Nov. 15, but we celebrate what you do throughout the year!

The NPD website will be highlighting the extraordinary work of donors and volunteers around the world every day. If you want us to recognize someone in your community, drop us a line at

We’ll be updating the site all the time with news about philanthropy, ways to give more effectively and profiles of unique and inspiring philanthropists—just like you! So come back often as we celebrate philanthropy and everything you have done to help change the world.
