Description of event:  

Please join us to celebrate National Philanthropy Day in Vancouver on Friday, November 15th, hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. At this year’s National Philanthropy Day event, we’ve secured a new venue at the River Rock Resort, Richmond. We look forward to celebrating as a community.

This year’s event will be reception style, featuring light refreshments, creating more time to interact with peers, colleagues, and fellow volunteers. The 2024 Awards will be presented again in a theatre-style setting, to honour and acknowledge this year’s Giving Hearts Awards nominees and recipients.

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