2016 Honorees

Honoring those who make a differenceAnnLogoSm

Philanthropy and volunteerism are selfless acts of generosity and kindness. National Philanthropy Day is designed to honor those who improve our community and our lives with their efforts in hundreds of cities across America. The event is organized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Miami-Dade Chapter with the generous support of our partners.

We will be honoring people and organizations in the following areas:
