What is National Philanthropy Day?  This event started right here in Orange County in 1986 and is now celebrated around the world in hundreds of locations! The event honors those who have contributed greatly to our local non-profit organizations through financial resources or service. 

Each year, people are nominated in a variety of categories and each nominee is honored at the event. Outstanding Honorees are brought to the stage at the event and address the audience, which typically is made up of more than 700 community leader and philanthropists.

Nominating someone for a National Philanthropy Day award has wonderful benefits for your organization, and for many, honoring and hosting a nominee is the best way they can say thanks.  Nominees are recognized in announcements and promotions throughout the year and are not only honored but is recognized as a philanthropic leaders in Orange County.  The process and the honor will cement the relationship you have with your best donors.
