About National Philanthropy Day and Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week

Lindsay Voltz, TBPW 2022 Chair

I truly believe in the power of philanthropy and that the generosity of heart thrives in the Tampa Bay community. Throughout the last 15 years I have spent in the nonprofit sector, I have been continually touched by the incredible stories of generosity of time, talent and treasure of philanthropists, volunteers, fundraisers and nonprofit organizations. I’m thrilled and honored to serve in the role of the 2022 Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week/National Philanthropy Day Chair! I hope to celebrate and honor the people and organizations who are making a deep impact on our community.

I am a nonprofit fundraising leader who has grown up surrounded by the spirit of philanthropy in the Tampa Bay community. Our community is incredibly special, and it’s because of our people. After spending 14 years in healthcare philanthropy I joined Virtuous as a Sr. Nonprofit Advisor where I am committed to helping nonprofits grow generosity in support of their mission. I am passionate about serving nonprofit organizations well and empowering them to connect more personally with their supporters.

What is National Philanthropy Day?

National Philanthropy Day (NPD) began in 1986 when President Ronald Reagan signed an official proclamation for a special day set aside to recognize the great contributions of philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—to the enrichment of our world.

NPD is an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. This year, AFP Tampa Bay will celebrate the contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions through a week-long digital media campaign.

In short, NPD is a celebration of philanthropy — giving, volunteering, and charitable engagement — that highlights the accomplishments, large and small, that philanthropy and all those involved in the philanthropic process make to our society and our world.

About Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week

Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week is a week-long celebration that embraces the spirit of National Philanthropy Day by reveling the generosity of heart that thrives in the Tampa Bay community. It is an opportunity to put a spotlight on some of our local philanthropists, nonprofit organizations, and fundraisers by showcasing their innovation, resilience, and leadership.

The 2022 AFP Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week will be an interactive digital celebration to tell the incredible stories of our community, held Monday, November 14th – Friday, November 18th. We will come together for an in-person celebration on Thursday, November 17th.

We know there are countless stories of generosity and innovation as nonprofits address new needs, philanthropists investing in long-term solutions, and fundraisers work tirelessly to ensure financial stability – and we want you to share these stories in our digital story board. 

Submit your stories of how people in this community are going above and beyond for the love of humankind. Five stories will be selected to be part of a video series produced by WEDU PBS with one featured each day of Tampa Bay Philanthropy Week. We encourage you to explore the website and our social media feeds to experience even more stories highlighting our extraordinary community.
