Nominate Your Top Donors and Volunteers!

Help the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties Chapter select this year’s winners.

This gala luncheon will take place on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at the Ventura Beach Marriott in Ventura.

First held locally in 1987, National Philanthropy Day recognizes the great contributions of philanthropy and those people active in the philanthropic community who have enriched our world. It also provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that is has made possible.

And the best Professional Fundraiser of the Year? Don’t forget Youth Volunteer of the Year for Santa Barbara County and another for Ventura County (ages 16-23).
