Description of event:  

Please join us to celebrate National Philanthropy Day in Vancouver on November 22nd at the Parq Vancouver, hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. At this year’s National Philanthropy Day event, we’re introducing a new luncheon format to promote more networking opportunities for both attendees and volunteers.

This year’s lunch will be reception style, featuring food stations and passed canapés, creating more time to interact with peers, colleagues, and fellow volunteers. The 2023 awards will be presented after lunch, in a theatre-style setting, to honour and acknowledge this year’s Giving Hearts Award nominees and recipients.

This is an excellent volunteer opportunity to come together with fundraising professionals and philanthropists, who are invested in strengthening our communities!
