National Philanthropy Day: Celebrating Giving- an interview with Andrew Watt on Uncommon Giving

The Rock the World Network is a community of uncommon givers. The Uncommon Giving show
features the leaders of charities, foundations and corporations rocking
our world.

 
This episode is #23 of all time in the top 50 shows on Solutionz Live!

Andrew Watt, FInstF, is
president and chief executive officer of the Association of Fundraising
Professionals (AFP), the professional association of individuals
responsible for generating philanthropic support for nonprofit
organizations.

National Philanthropy Day, November 15, acknowledges the entire spectrum
of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognizes the
profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society. And,
each year AFP honors individuals and groups who, through their hard work
and dedication, have enhanced philanthropy, their communities and the
world.

What makes philanthropy so special is that no one is
required to give of themselves. There are no national laws or
regulations which mandate that you must volunteer or get involved.
Philanthropy is so powerful and inspiring precisely because it is
voluntary—that through the goodness of our hearts, through our need to
connect, through our desire to see a better world, we come together to
improve the quality of life for all people.

For 50 years, AFP has been the standard-bearer for professionalism in fundraising.

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) is the professional
association of individuals and organizations that generate philanthropic
support for a wide variety of charitable institutions. Founded in 1960,
AFP advances philanthropy through its more than 30,000 members in 230
chapters throughout the world.
