NPD Awards 2017

AFP - NY Westchester is pleased to announce that we will bestow two awards at the November 14, 2017 National Philanthropy Day Conference.

We live and work in a region of the country that comes together to stand out and do great work in philanthropic endeavors.  In keeping with that, we want to honor those who help our organizations as philanthropic partners in our work. 

CORPORATE PHILANTHROPY – This award celebrates a corporation or its corporate foundation that demonstrates outstanding commitment through financial support and through encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and community involvement.

YOUTH IN PHILANTHROPY – Each year, we honor high school or college students (either as individuals or as groups) who have shown leadership and made contributions to furthering the work of Westchester nonprofits.
