The Association of Fundraising Professionals' (AFP) National Philanthropy Day was created in 1986 by philanthropist Douglas Freeman of Orange County, California, and formalized by then-U.S. The first National Philanthropy Day awards luncheon was held in cities across the USA in 1986, after President Ronald Reagan proclaimed November 15 as National Philanthropy Day. President Ronald Reagan was the first world leader to declare an official National Philanthropy Day, to celebrate 'the love of humankind'.
In 2012, the Government of Canada signed the National Philanthropy Day Act into law, declaring November 15 as the annual celebration of National Philanthropy Day as well.
