National Philanthropy Day® is a special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—have made to our lives, our communities and our world.  

Consider the impact of the charitable sector and the increasing role it plays in our societies and countries around the world. Billions of dollars given every year. Millions of programs and services. Connecting individuals to causes, and to each other. Fostering civic participation. Improving the quality of life for all people.  

Nominations are now OPEN! Any individual can submit a nomination  for The Greater Wichita Chapter of the AFP's National Philanthropy Day awards.  Nominations with full honoree information must be received by May 31st, 2023. Please email any questions to Bridget Mersmann at
