Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week

What is Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week?

Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week, celebrated Monday, November 9th – Friday, November 13th, is an opportunity to celebrate philanthropists, nonprofits, and fundraisers who have demonstrated innovation, resiliency, leadership, and generosity through this difficult year.

PhilanthropyTampaBay.org is a new website with an interactive plugin to allow the community to submit their stories of how they have gone above and beyond for the love of humankind. Anyone visiting the site can submit a story, and together these stories will create a digital quilt spotlighting how Tampa Bay non-profits have been essential through the pandemic.

Stories submitted by October 12th will be considered for a digital feature to include a professionally produced video on our Philanthropy Week website and AFP Tampa Bay social media. A small panel of volunteers will review the stories and select ones that speak to the spirit of philanthropy in 2020.

From healthcare heroes to community concerts, every non-profit has stepped up in a new way to help our community through this challenge. Philanthropists have come alive to support innovative solutions to brand new problems. Fundraisers have uprooted their plans and discovered new ways to raise funds for the causes they care about.
