Association of Fundraising Professionals: Southern Arizona Chapter

2012 Spirit of Philanthropy Awards

The Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Arizona Chapter is presenting the Spirit of Philanthropy Awards at National Philanthropy Day on Thursday, November 8, 2012. As a way to recognize special people and organizations within our community that have made significant philanthropic contributions, please consider honoring someone you feel is deserving of this important acknowledgement.

The intent of the Spirit of Philanthropy Award is to recognize publicly those who exemplify philanthropy through their contributions of time, effort, and/or resources. Formal praise of those who demonstrate extraordinary leadership and vision in support of your organization’s goals not only confirms their efforts but also inspires others in Southern Arizona to become more involved in our community. The Spirit of Philanthropy Award is an amazing opportunity to recognize individuals who give back to Southern Arizona.

All recipients will be featured in the media presentation at the event and receive their award on-stage. If you respond by July 31, 2012, your honoree will be listed in Tucson Lifestyle magazine. To receive all other recognition benefits, please respond by October 1. If you would like your honoree and other supporters to receive event mailings such as the invitation, please send those mailing addresses to


There is a $75.00 charge for submitting each honoree which covers the cost of the recognition award and production of the media presentation. Please note: you must purchase seats at the event since they are not included with this award.

SOP Table Sponsorship packages are available for $750 and are the best way to truly celebrate your honoree. This is an all inclusive way to take advantage of the benefits of National Philanthropy Day. Reserve your package by August 31, 2012 to receive special pricing ($800 thereafter). Package includes:

  • SOP award for one honoree
  • 1 table at NPD (10 seats)
