Are you looking for a fun and rewarding way to give back? Here’s how you can help with the 2015 National Capital Philanthropy Day celebration:

  • Ask your organization to participate in Honor Your Own. It is a wonderful way to publicly recognize one of your organization’s generous supporters.
  • Help us recruit sponsors for National Capital Philanthropy Day to make this year’s celebration the best yet.
  • Become a National Capital Philanthropy Day ambassador. Buy tickets, encourage your friends to come, and spread the word on social media.
  • Join our Celebration Circle. You’ll receive two tickets to the event, and your name will be listed in the program. It is a great opportunity to bring your mentee, and introduce them to talented fundraisers in your network!

Please send an email to letting us know which of the areas you’re interested in assisting with. We are also looking for volunteers who want join our 2016 NCPD committee to help with logistics, sponsorships, awardee selection, marketing, and/or Honor Your Own promotion. We appreciate your support!
