International Day of Charity 2019: A World of Impact

September 5, 2019

Taking place every year on September 5th, the UN’s International Day of Charity serves as a great reminder each year to celebrate the power of philanthropy.

In our quest to enable domestic and cross-border giving by American donors—individuals, foundations, and corporations—we have the privilege of witnessing philanthropy in action every day.
