 National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is a special day set aside each year to recognize and celebrate the many contributions that philanthropists, board members, volunteers, civic and corporate leaders, and non-profit professionals have made in our lives, our community and our nation.  This year, NPD will again be celebrated on Friday November 21, 2014 with a luncheon at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa.
Five awards are presented each year to individuals or groups of Southern Arizona whose philanthropic contributions and dedicated volunteerism improve the quality of life in our community.  Nominations may be made by executive directors, development professionals, board members and volunteers within your organization.
Nominate that special leader, individual or group, today.  Nominations will be accepted through June 6, 2014.  Awardees will be selected in late June and nominators will be notified of results at that time.
