CALL AHEAD - In these times of concern, Soul Of Miami recommends that you call ahead before attending any event to confirm it is still happening. Many events are being canceled with very little notice. Most of all, be safe, we love you!
The Association of Fundraising Professionals – AFP Miami continues its tradition of honoring the local philanthropic community at the annual National Philanthropy Day Awards luncheon, which will take place on Thursday, November 12, 2015. Each year, several hundred members of the community gather to recognize and celebrate the who’s who of Miami philanthropy.
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’s annual NPD luncheon is Miami’s premier philanthropy event. This special day is set aside to recognize and 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. Because it’s the 30th anniversary, this won’t be your father’s (or mother’s) National Philanthropy Day celebration!
AFP Miami is proud to work with its NPD partners – The Miami Foundation, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, and Partnership for Philanthropic Planning – to advance philanthropy and highlight the generosity of our community’s top donors. Each year, AFP Miami offers the local community an opportunity to acknowledge, highlight and pay tribute to philanthropic excellence. We invite nominations for extraordinary individuals, corporations and foundations in one of the following distinguished award categories:
* Outstanding Philanthropist Award
* James W. McLamore Outstanding Volunteer Award
* Julia Tuttle Award for Community Involvement & Corporate Citizenship
* Outstanding Grant Maker Award
In addition, each NPD table sponsor will be provided with the opportunity to recognize their own table honoree with a personalized engraved gift.
