National Capital Philanthropy Day is an annual celebration of the Washington, DC region’s individuals, nonprofits, volunteers, businesses, and fundraising professionals whose philanthropic contributions are the foundation of our community. We are grateful to the many outstanding individuals, businesses and nonprofits that make the Capital region a better place to live because of their commitment to the vital role philanthropy plays in our daily lives.
On November 18, 2014, more than 600 senior business executives, philanthropists, professional fundraisers, volunteers, and the media will gather for the 13th annual National Capital Philanthropy Day at the Capital Hilton hotel in Washington, D.C. National Capital Philanthropy Day is part of over 200 similar celebrations happening worldwide at the beginning of November in honor of National Philanthropy Day, recognized on November 15th world-wide by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
