Join us for the 30th Annual Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day! 

Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day is AFP SVC’s premier event held each year in conjunction with National Philanthropy Day.  A celebration of excellence in local philanthropy, Philanthropy Day is a community event attended by hundreds of fundraisers, community leaders, funders and philanthropists.


Participating in Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day is an excellent way for local nonprofits to celebrate those individuals, organizations, corporations and foundations that have done exceptional work in our community.  It’s a wonderful way to say thank you to your fundraising volunteers, foundation and corporate supporters.


The nominations period is now closed.  Honorees will be announced in July 2017.



The Outstanding award categories are competitive.  Nominations will be reviewed by a volunteer panel of local community and business leaders. One honoree will be selected to receive each award.  Below are the eight Outstanding Award categories:


- Outstanding Philanthropist

- Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser

- Outstanding Professional Fundraiser

- Outstanding Corporate Grant Maker with More Than 300 Employees

- Outstanding Corporate Grant Maker with Fewer Than 300 Employees

- Outstanding Foundation Grant Maker

- Outstanding Philanthropic Organization

- Outstanding Philanthropic Youth Organization



A maximum of 50 honorees will be recognized in the Distinguished Volunteer Fundraiser Category.  The Distinguished Volunteer Fundraiser award is NOT competitive.  This is a great way to pay tribute to a champion of your organization.
