NPD 2017 Honorees



Each year AFP Golden Gate marks one day to celebrate the spirit of giving by recognizing exemplars in philanthropy and social change. On Friday, November 10, 2017 awards will be presented to individuals and institutions whose giving to the community inspires all of us, and whose remarks at the luncheon are bound to lift up the whole room of over 800 attendees.
