Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week

What is Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week?

Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week embraces the spirit of National Philanthropy Day as a celebration of philanthropists, nonprofits, and fundraisers in Tampa Bay who have demonstrated innovation, resilience, leadership, and generosity of heart.

2023 Story Submission Deadline is September 30th

The 2023 Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week will be celebrated Monday, November 13th – Friday, November 17th.

PhilanthropyTampaBay.org is a dedicated space for the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Tampa Bay Chapter to celebrate philanthropy and generosity in the Tampa Bay community. We welcome all community members to submit their stories of how they or someone else has gone above and beyond for the love of humankind. Together, these stories will spotlight how Tampa Bay nonprofit organizations have been essential to the Tampa Bay community. A small panel of AFP members will select five stories as part of a video series that we will share throughout Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week. We will also be spotlighting individuals on our Heart of the Community Gallery and in our TBPW Podcast, which can be found anywhere you like to listen to podcasts.

Throughout TBPW 2023 we will share the inspirational stories of Tampa’s philanthropic community through videos, podcasts, photo galleries, and written word. Tampa Bay philanthropists, nonprofits, and fundraisers have been essential in providing service, solutions and support to our community. Our community has countless stories of generosity and innovation as philanthropists invest in long-term solutions, fundraisers work tirelessly to ensure financial stability, and nonprofits address new needs. It is AFP Tampa Bay’s wish to tell these stories and honor generosity as part of a one-of-a-kind, weeklong celebration of National Philanthropy Day.

AFP Tampa Bay will celebrate Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week from Monday, November 13th through Friday, November 17th with a special in-person celebration of philanthropy on Thursday, November 16th. The virtual storytelling will take place on our Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week website, afpsuncoast.org, our AFP Tampa Bay Facebook Page, and other social media outlets.

Thank you for your support of Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week and AFP Tampa. We look forward to celebrating philanthropy and generosity with you!
