National Philanthropy Day Awards Breakfast

To mark the National Philanthropy Day®, the “Best of the State” Connecticut Philanthropy Awards Breakfast, sponsored the Association of Fundraising Professionals Connecticut and Fairfield County, CT chapters, will be held on Friday, November 6th, 2015 at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale in New Haven, CT.

This event follows a 31 year history of Association of Fundraising Professionals chapters in Connecticut honoring individuals and organizations to have done much to enhance our communities and our connections to those around us. Last year’s Awards Breakfast was sold out at 20 participants, the largest event in the history of the event. Participants had the opportunity to meet with their peers and enjoy the opportunity to discuss ideas, which we believe is one of the greatest assets of this event. Together we learn and move forward, better able to succeed at the important work that we do on behalf of all our communities.
