2017 National Philanthropy Day
November 2, 2017  |  The Westin Seattle 

National Philanthropy Day brings together the donors who support the causes that our local and global communities hold dear, the fundraisers who connect donors' passions to nonprofit missions and each of us who believes in the power of philanthropy to make the world a better place.

We're reviewing nominations for our 2017 National Philanthropy Day awards in the following categories:

  • Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation
  • Outstanding Philanthropic Small Business
  • Outstanding Philanthropic Organization
  • Outstanding Philanthropist(s)
  • Outstanding Philanthropic Family

We'll announce this year's awardees when we open registration later this summer.
