2017 Volunteer in Philanthropy

VIP photo

A key to a successful nonprofit is the strength of its volunteers. These selfless individuals offer their time, talent and passion to every aspect of an organization’s operations – from working with clients, to organizing fundraising events, to providing guidance and vision as a board member.

Each year, nonprofit organizations are invited to use this day to honor a special volunteer and recognize their distinguished service. We call these dedicated individuals our Volunteers in Philanthropy or VIPs.

Honor one of your distinguished volunteers at our 2017 National Philanthropy Day® Awards Luncheon.

When your organization purchases a table of ten at the awards luncheon, you have the incredible opportunity of recognizing your very own Volunteer in Philanthropy (VIP)!

Your VIP will be personally recognized during the luncheon, up on the large screen and in the printed program. Each VIP will be presented with a beautiful certificate and lei while our emcees describe each one’s selfless dedication and service to your company, organization, or nonprofit. It is the perfect way to say thank you to your VIP while cultivating other volunteers, board members, and donors. Make your purchase of a VIP table of ten for only $1,500 via our online registration.

To ensure that your special Volunteer in Philanthropy receives their proper recognition, please submit in 70 words or less, the reasons your VIP was chosen and include a color photo.

Please send to: 
AFP Aloha Chapter
Attn: VIP Program 
P.O. Box 11899 Honolulu, HI 96828

Scanned photos should be at least 4" across at 300 dpi. Digital photos should be set at the highest resolution.
