Association of Fundraising Professionals: Southern Arizona Chapter

The Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Arizona Chapter will host its 31st annual National Philanthropy Day Awards luncheon on Friday, November 15, 2019 at The Tucson Convention Center Grand Ballroom. Registration is at 11:00 AM. The luncheon is 11:30 AM until 1:15 PM. Guess who’s the Emcee??? Tucson’s own editorial cartoonist from the Arizona Daily Star, David Fitzsimmons! Buy your tickets here.

National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is a special day set aside to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – to the enrichment of our lives, our community and our world. Though the primary goal of the event is to celebrate Tucson’s generous spirit, the National Philanthropy Day luncheon is the primary fundraiser for the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Arizona Chapter.

Six major awards will be presented to individuals and organizations whose philanthropic contributions and dedicated volunteerism improve the quality of life in our community.

The 2019 National Philanthropy Day Honorees are:

Outstanding Philanthropist – Dominic Ortega

Outstanding Foundation – The David and Lura Lovell Foundation

Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser – Michael Cyrino

Outstanding Fundraising Executive – Julie Ragland

Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy – The Student Body of Salpointe Catholic High School

Outstanding Corporation/Corporate Foundation – Tucson Federal Credit Union

Congratulations to the 90 chapters including our amazing chapter here in Southern Arizona who are receiving the 2019 Friends of Diversity Designation!

The Friends of Diversity Designation recognizes those chapters who have accomplished many of the key objectives in our goal of advancing diversity. Thank you for all that you do and your commitment to increasing inclusion, diversity, equity, and access in the fundraising profession.
