On National Philanthropy Day (NPD), we celebrate the extraordinary individuals and organizations who are changing the world with a giving heart. This year, AFP Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties Chapter will recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to enrich and benefit our communities on Thursday, November 10 at 5pm at the Museum of Ventura County.
