National Philanthropy Day is an incredible day to step back and look at the impact of the work we do in the nonprofit field every day.  It is a great day to connect with our peers, recognize our leaders and celebrate the world that wouldn’t be the same without the work of our nonprofits.” – Kira Foley-Tuzman
