About National Philanthropy

National Philanthropy Day is a special day set aside to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—to the enrichment of our world.

NPD was originally conceived of and organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s. The first official events were held in 1986 after President Reagan signed the official NPD proclamation.

The day provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. NPD celebrates the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions. 

National Philanthropy Day is the St. Louis region’s premier celebration of charitable giving to better the lives of our community. Each November more than 500 guests attend National Philanthropy Day to celebrate philanthropy and to recognize those outstanding institutions and individuals who help lead the way through their inspirational giving and volunteerism. Please join us in celebrating the leaders in philanthropy by submitting a nomination today for one or more of the following categories:
