A Community-Wide Event

While many individual organizations honor their own supporters in the greater Washington, DC area, National Capital Philanthropy Day offers community-wide visibility and public recognition of individuals, companies, and foundations committed to philanthropy. Through their passion, dedication, and leadership, these outstanding leaders are improving the quality of life in the metropolitan region, and are making the world a better place for all.
