National Philanthropy Day® Media Supplement
July 24, 2013
Canada is the first country in the world to permanently celebrate the importance of giving, volunteerism and engagement by recognizing National Philanthropy Day® every year on November 15. National Philanthropy Day® is a celebration of everything Canadians do to help their fellow citizens. It is also the unofficial start of the giving season.
Studies show that charities receive a significant amount of gifts in the last two months of the year—sometimes anywhere between a third and a half of their annual revenue. National Philanthropy Day® is the perfect way for donors to begin their giving season—considering new causes to support and developing a giving plan that will maximize their contributions of time and money.
To recognize this occasion, AFP and The Globe and Mail are developing a media supplement that will cover topics such as:
- What to support – overviews of some of the most innovative and exciting causes that Canadians can support this year
- How to support – tips on wise giving, and different methods that donors can use to create impact
- Corporate support – a look at how businesses and corporations are helping to support charitable causes with long-term sustainable strategies
- Individual support – amazing stories from people across Canada who are driven to change their communities and the world
Want to submit material? Deadlines are as follows:
Space closing: October 3
Material deadline: November 7
