National Philanthropy Day in Colorado is accepting nominations for outstanding philanthropic individuals, businesses, organizations and foundations. Award winners and their nominators will be honored at the National Philanthropy Day in Colorado Awards Luncheon on Nov. 9, at the Seawell Grand Ballroom in Denver.
National Philanthropy Day is a celebration of philanthropy and pays tribute to Coloradans involved in giving, volunteering and helping to improve the quality of life in our community. Nomination forms are available atafpcc.org. The deadline to submit a nomination is 5 p.m. July 16.
A public selection process, involving a wide-ranging group of community representatives, including members of the nonprofit/foundation, business and government sectors, determines the winners. The Outstanding Youth and Outstanding Youth Group winners receive $3,000 scholarships for continuing education courtesy of The Daniels Fund.
National Philanthropy Day is both an official day and a grassroots movement. Every year, since 1986 when President Ronald Reagan first proclaimed Nov. 15 as National Philanthropy Day, communities across the globe have celebrated by hosting events to recognize activities of donors, volunteers, foundations, leaders, corporations and others engaged in philanthropy.
In Colorado, National Philanthropy Day is presented by the Colorado Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, a membership organization committed to advancing philanthropy. The event’s presenting sponsor is Rose Community Foundation.
