National Philanthropy Day, a program of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, pays tribute to the invaluable contributions that philanthropy has made to our personal lives, our nation, and the world.  It acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the quality of our lives and the fabric of our society.

AFP Maryland is proud to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy and those people active in our philanthropic community here in Maryland.  Through this annual event, we encourage all people to rededicate themselves to the principle of giving. This year we will honor Mark and Patricia Joseph as Outstanding Philanthropists, and the Kahlert Foundation as the Outstanding Philanthropic Foundation for 2017.  We will also recognize Unsung Heroes , Outstanding Youth Fundraisers and the Maryland Chamber of Commerce Business Philanthropy Awards at this event.
