National Philanthropy Day® is the day set aside to remember and recognize the impact philanthropy—charitable giving, volunteering, and engagement—has made in our world. The day was first celebrated in 1986 in the U.S. with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan. It is now celebrated in more than 100 communities around the world and been recognized permanently by the government of Canada.
