AFP Tampa Bay Introduces
2020 Tampa Bay
A week-long celebration of National Philanthropy Day
Presented by the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay philanthropists, nonprofits, and fundraisers have been essential in providing solutions to the ongoing problems our community faces through this health crisis and social unrest. The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything about how we move in the world in a matter of weeks. Then, the world shifted again after the murder of George Floyd and the wave of social justice protests that followed.
We know you have countless stories of generosity and innovation as nonprofits address new needs, philanthropists invest in long-term solutions, and fundraisers work tirelessly to ensure financial stability. Because this year has been so extraordinary, AFP Tampa Bay wants to help tell these stories as part of a one-of-a-kind virtual Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week, culminating with a special keynote speaker provided by AFP Global on National Philanthropy Day - Thursday, November 12th.
Rather than subject you to more virtual meetings, we are going to bring you a week-long virtual celebration of philanthropists, nonprofits, fundraisers and our community. AFP Tampa Bay will start the campaign on November 9th and we will conclude our digital festivities on November 13th. The celebration will take place on our Philanthropy Week website, our AFP Tampa Bay Facebook Page, and other social media outlets.
Instead of our annual NPD nomination process, we are going to ask you to submit your stories of how people in this community are going above and beyond for the love of humankind. We will have a small panel of AFP members enlisted to select five stories as part of a video series from WEDU that we will share throughout Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week.
We will also be spotlighting individuals on our Hearts of the Community page and in podcast style interviews on our Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week website.
