On Friday, November 17, 2023, the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Arizona Chapter will host its 35th Annual National Philanthropy Day Awards Program at the Tucson Convention Center. Six major awards will be presented to individuals and organizations whose philanthropic contributions and dedicated volunteerism improve the quality of life in our community. While contributions of volunteerism are important and considered during the review process, the individual/organization must have made a philanthropic impact. For further details, please pay attention to the criteria listed under each award.
The six major awards and the criteria for judging are available below. Please review the categories and criteria for evaluation carefully, as there have been changes to this nominations packet. Use the evaluation criteria to assist you in preparing the nominations for your candidates. We highly recommend nominators have all nominees give their approval for the nomination prior to submission.
