About National Philanthropy Day®

As development colleagues, we join together to promote thoughtful and effective philanthropy in the greater Madison area. One way we demonstrate the impact of our noble work is through our annual Philanthropy Day event every November. Through the amazing stories of our award recipients, we are able to share the power of this philanthropy with the general community and recognize some very special people.

Each spring, individuals are encouraged to nominate individuals or organizations in one of eight categories: lifetime achievement, outstanding individual philanthropist, outstanding business or corporation, outstanding small business or corporation, outstanding volunteer fundraiser, oustanding fundraising professional, outstanding philanthropic organization or foundation, and outstanding young philanthropist. Nomination applications are made available online and materials are due in early summer.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Please contact the Philanthropy Day committee chair or click here for more information.

Since 1987, AFP Greater Madison has recognized philanthropic individuals and organizations in the greater Madison area. A complete list of winners is available by clicking the link below.
