May 1--The deadline is Friday, May 17 at 5 p.m. to submit nominations to the Fort Lauderdale/Broward Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals for the 26th Annual National Philanthropy Day® Awards, a nationally recognized event. This is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to our lives and our community here in Broward County.
In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation officially recognizing National Philanthropy Day. Since then, the day has been recognized by numerous states, provincial and local governments across North America.
