National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) is a special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in our philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities, and our world. When NPD was first celebrated in 1986, then-President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation officially recognizing Nov. 15, 1986, as National Philanthropy Day®. Since then, the day has been recognized by numerous state, provincial, and local governments across North America. The Association of Fundraising Professionals Montana Chapter is honored to celebrate and recognize these individuals and organizations whose achievements have had a significant impact on our society.

The community is invited to attend this event to celebrate the honorees. For ticket information please contact Cindy McGinnis at (406)294-1641 or at cmcginnis@billingsymca.org.
