Celebration of Philanthropy
In 2010 CLCF established the Celebration of Philanthropy. Every April, CLCF partners with the Rotary Club of Alexandria to present Celebration of Philanthropy. The goal of Celebration of Philanthropy is to highlight the generosity of the people of Central Louisiana and create opportunities for an even greater impact to local nonprofits through wise and effective giving.
During the event a nonprofit trade show is created by CLCF’s nonprofit members to remind the community how important charitable giving and voluntarism are to the quality of life we enjoy in central Louisiana. Each member nonprofit has the opportunity to showcase the work they have accomplished in the past year, the goals the will try to accomplish in the next year, and accept donations for the Impact Challenge.
The keynote address at the Rotary luncheon is given by the winner(s) of the pervious years Community Impact Award. After the luncheon CLCF organizes a workshop designed to help nonprofits. In the past the workshops have included topics such as Financial 101, IRS Tax Law for nonprofits, the roles of volunteers and staff in directing organizations, and effective leadership.
CLCF relies on sponsors to help make Celebration of Philanthropy a success.
Celebration of Philanthropy happens annually in the beginning of April.
