The following individuals will be honored at the 2017 National Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon:

“National Philanthropy Day® is the day we recognize and pay tribute to the contributions that philanthropy - and philanthropists - have made to our great city and our nation," noted Denise Keiser, President of the AFP-CAC. “With the federal government downsizing, charities have to rely more and more on individual contributions. Our honorees have made the commitment to support philanthropy in the tri-county area and keep the spirit of civic betterment alive and strong. We are grateful to have them here."
