2021 National Philanthropy Day® Luncheon and Generosity of Spirit™ Awards: TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE

Celebrating our 25th year of National Philanthropy Day®

The 2021 Generosity of Spirit™ Luncheon will be a memorable year

National Philanthropy Day® (NPD) is a celebration of philanthropy—giving, volunteering and charitable engagement—that highlights the accomplishments, small and large, that philanthropy—and all those involved in the philanthropic process—makes to our society and our world.

Throughout Canada, in each and every year, the 15th day of November shall be known as “National Philanthropy Day”. This day signifies the importance of working together for the common good.

In Calgary, the Generosity of Spirit Awards recognize that philanthropic deeds come in all different shapes and sizes — charitable giving, volunteering, private acts for the public good  — and on National Philanthropy Day, no act of kindness goes unnoticed. AFP Calgary & Area is delighted to welcome ViTreo as the Presenting Sponsor of this year’s 25th anniversary event.

Join us on Tuesday, November 16th (11:30 am to 1:30 pm) and celebrate with us virtually!

Our Host, Dave Kelly, will introduce you to this year’s recipients of the Generosity of Spirit Awards recipients, and the Professional award recipients – Hazel Gillespie Community Investment Leadership Award and Outstanding New Fundraising Professional Award.

Our celebration includes a panel of Calgary business and non-profit leaders who will bring their insights in conversation on Calgary’s emerging economy.

Please register today and join us for lunch catered by Great Events Catering, for our virtual National Philanthropy Day celebration presented by ViTreo.

Help us recognize the incredible generosity and contributions of these individuals, companies and organizations.
