National Philanthropy Day (November 15) is an observance designated by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). It is a day to celebrate charitable activities, in the form of donated financial, in-kind and volunteering support. It is celebrated with blog postings by AFP highlighting outstanding charitable activities, as well as luncheons and awards throughout the USA by different AFP chapters.
The association has been celebrating National Philanthropy Day since 1986, and was founded by Orange County, California, philanthropist Douglas Freeman https://npdoc.org/about-what-is-npd/, and formalized by then US President Ronald Reagan who signed a proclamation recognizing November 15 as National Philanthropy Day in the US. In 2013, the Canadian government signed into law a proclamation celebrating November 15 as National Philanthropy Day annually.
