What: National Philanthropy Day is a rare opportunity to come together as philanthropists, business and nonprofit professionals, volunteers, board members, friends, colleagues and communities -- to celebrate the impact of philanthropy.

Why: National Philanthropy Day honors those who are making outstanding contributions to our communities and to our world.

Who: AFP Golden Gate honors Bay Area individuals, organizations and businesses that invest their time and resources to improve our communities and the broader world.

How: AFP Golden Gate offers a unique opportunity to honor your own volunteers, board members and civic leaders in front of an audience of more than 700 attendees. At the November event, AFP Golden Gate presents eight awards to leaders active in our philanthropic community.

Spirit of Philanthropy (SOP) Award: Sponsors have the option of gifting the SOP Award to someone, typically seated at their table. SOP Awardees have their bio and photo listed in the program booklet and are recognized from the podium during the luncheon, when they stand to be acknowledged by the whole room and then presented the physical award gift at the table. Note that a group can be given the SOP, e.g. a Board Committee, with the group profile and photo or logo in the program booklet. If you'd like to see how SOP Awardees are listed in the program book, click here to see the 2018 book.
