YOU'RE INVITED! JOIN US FOR THE 2018 NATIONAL PHILANTHROPY DAY CELEBRATION
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2018
BEST WESTERN PREMIER WATERFRONT HOTEL & CONVENTION CENTER - OSHKOSH

The Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals invites you to attend National Philanthropy Day. The day offers a little something for everyone from professional development workshops to a luncheon and ceremony honoring the 2018 award recipients.  Whether you work for a small shop or are part of a large team, are a new professional or lead your organization, are an AFP member or not, you have a reason to celebrate philanthropy.


Each day hundreds of individuals, companies and organizations in our community help change the world with a giving heart. From donors to volunteers, from large, international nonprofits to the Community Foundations, each has made an indelible contribution to our communities, our nation, and our world. National Philanthropy Day (NPD) provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible.
