What is National Philanthropy Day?

The purpose of National Philanthropy Day is to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those active in the philanthropic community—to the enrichment of our world. On this special day in the Quad Cities, we reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible at a luncheon. During this luncheon celebration, numerous awards will be given to honor those that are making a difference through philanthropy.
