National Philanthropy Day®

The impact of our partnerships with donors, advocates and volunteers allow us to do the extraordinary work realized by over 2.2-million nonprofits throughout the country, and almost 35,000 in Wisconsin alone.  

In honor of National Philanthropy Day every year, Partners in Philanthropy is a unique opportunity for each member to celebrate two donors/volunteers that have made a difference to their organization and to the greater community.  Submit your names for the 2019 Honor Roll today!



Below is a listing of those that were nominated for making that impact for the members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southeastern WI, and their organizations in 2019. These special Partners will be recognized on November 12, 2019, along with the 2019 National Philanthropy Day Honorees.
