On November 14, 2014, the Central Iowa Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) held its annual National Philanthropy Day event at the downtown Des Moines Marriott hotel. I’m the association’s Chapter Administrator (maintain the finances, organize monthly luncheons, etc.) and it gives me great pleasure to be associated with this group and to be a small part of this amazing annual event which recognizes the philanthropic contributions of our Central Iowa citizens. Shoot me an email if you’d like to be more involved with AFP!

About the Association of Fundraising Professionals

Since 1960, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) has inspired global change and supported efforts that generated over $1 trillion. AFP’s nearly 30,000 individual and organizational members raise over $100 billion annually, equivalent to one-third of all charitable giving in North America and millions more around the world.

About National Philanthropy Day

National Philanthropy Day® is a special day set aside on the fifteenth of November.  The purpose of this day is to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—to the enrichment of our world.

Last year, more than 130 AFP chapters held NPD events and activities across North America. In addition, AFP launched #NPDLove, a global social media outreach and awareness campaign to engage the global charitable sector, the philanthropic community, and the public in activities to demonstrate “love of humankind” and highlight how they (or their organization) are helping to change the world.
