National Philanthopy Day is November 14.

The day pays tribute to the invaluable contributions that philanthropy has made to our personal lives, our nation, and the world.

It also acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the quality of our lives and the fabric of our society.

The great contributions of philanthropy and those people active in our philanthropic community here in Maryland are recognized each year by the sector at AFP-Maryland's National Philanthropy Day celebration.

This year, AFP-Maryland has announced:

  • Aris Melissaratos as the 2014 Philanthropist of the Year
  • The Charles Crane Family Foundation as the 2014 Foundation of the Year

At the event, the Business Philanthropy Awards, Outstanding Youth Fundraisers, and the Unsung Hero Awards will also be recognized.

And, this year, special recognition is planned for all Maryland Community Foundations for an anniversary celebration.

We look forward to celebrating ABAG Members, philanthropists and the field overall on Friday, November 14, 2014.
