It’s a day that recognizes all who volunteer their time, treasure and talent to make a difference in communities, through large gestures and small but all coming from a generosity of spirit and concern for their neighbors next door and around the world.

Here in Ohio, chapters of the Association of Fundraising Professionals celebrate philanthropy in their local communities throughout the month. I’m excited that several of our members are being recognized for their work at these local events:

Thank you to these honorees and to:

The 2.51 million Ohioans who volunteered more than 267 million hours

Ohioans who donated $5.59 billion to charities

Ohio’s 75 United Ways that contributed $180 million

It’s a lot to celebrate.
