Philanthropy Day is CNE’s annual community celebration of giving that has as its goal to educate, motivate and inspire the philanthropist in all of us.

Philanthropy has an incredible transformative power in our nation, and is the engine that fuels our nonprofit sector. Philanthropy Day honors and celebrates this unique American tradition. As part of this event, CNE hosts a luncheon with a nationally-recognized guest speaker to provide new insights, strategies and perspectives on social innovation and effective philanthropy.

Each year Philanthropy Day draws a sold out crowd of over 400 philanthropists, business leaders, nonprofit professionals and elected leaders. Join us.
