The Association of Fundraising Professionals - Greater Houston Chapter’s first National Philanthropy Day luncheon was held in 1986. Today, the event has grown to be one of the largest National Philanthropy Day celebrations in the country and the premier celebration of philanthropy and recognition of community volunteers in the Greater Houston area. The board of the AFPGHC thanks all who serve as National Philanthropy Day chairs, co-chairs, committee members, and event volunteers. We salute your contributions to the fundraising profession and thank you for making National Philanthropy Day® such a success every year. This event would not be possible without your leadership.
