2013 National Philanthropy Day
Association of Fundraising Professionals Miami - Announces Honorees
In 1985, AFP Miami initiated the first National Philanthropy Day awards event. Today, National Philanthropy Day (NPD) is celebrated across North America and around the world. AFP Miami continues its tradition of honoring the local philanthropic community at the annual National Philanthropy Day Awards luncheon, which will take place on Tuesday, November 12, 2013.
This special day is set aside to pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy—and the people active in Miami’s philanthropic community—have made to our lives, our local community and our world.

“National Philanthropy Day has evolved into the premiere annual event for nonprofit organizations and the community at-large to recognize philanthropists, volunteers, corporations and foundations. They generously impact lives across our great city and our nation and we thank them,” noted Patrick Morris, President of AFP Miami.
The event, this year co-chaired by AFP Miami board members Karelia Martinez Carbonell and Jenna Trueba, draws over 500 guests who gather to recognize, celebrate, and highlight our community’s top donors, volunteers, foundations, and other individuals and organizations involved in philanthropy.
In partnership with The Miami Foundation, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, and Partnership for Philanthropic Planning, AFP Miami reflects on the global impact of philanthropy and the local stewardship in our diverse city.
