Today on National Philanthropy Day — and every day — we are blessed by the commitment of those who support the work and mission of Angela Hospice.
This day provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it makes possible, celebrating the contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.
“I’ve worked in philanthropy for many years, and at Angela Hospice it goes far behind just giving monetary contributions; it’s about the giving spirit, something we see regularly in the community when we connect with others in and outside the Angela Hospice walls,” said Jennifer Dale, Angela Hospice Director of Community Outreach and Philanthropy, and board member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. “We thank, appreciate, and honor every donor, doer, and door opener we get the privilege of working work.”
While Angela Hospice was founded in 1985, the history of National Philanthropy Day goes just as far back. It was originally conceived and organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s, and the first official event held in 1986 after President Reagan signed the official NPD proclamation.
So, each year, on November 15, we join the rest of the world in recognizing those who are active in the philanthropic community – like so many of you are. Without supporters like you, we wouldn’t be able to continue providing the compassionate care we’ve become known for over the last three decades.
“Each donation, no matter the amount or how often you give, is something we treasure, value, and appreciate,” said Dale.
Whether you’ve chosen to give a monetary donation in memory of a loved one, donated to a specific program, or sponsored an event, we are incredibly grateful.
They say it is more blessed to give than to receive. Thank you and bless you, for supporting the mission of Angela Hospice.
