In 1986, President Ronald Reagan, acting on the authorization and request of Congress, declared November 15 as “National Philanthropy Day.”

In his proclamation, President Reagan wrote:

The literal meaning of “philanthropy” is “affection for mankind.” Throughout our history, we Americans have displayed this trait through our generous charitable giving and our spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. We help each other, and we reach out to help people all over the world. Our tradition of voluntarism embodies a great deal of caring, initiative, and ingenuity in solving problems and improving our communities. It is one of our greatest strengths as a people.

. . .

We can be very grateful to the philanthropic individuals and organizations who have contributed so much to our social welfare, our cultural life, and the improvement of our communities. We can be grateful as well for our American spirit of giving from the heart.

The life-affirming and life-saving work of National Right to Life would not be possible without the philanthropy of members like you. Your “affection for mankind” extends to the most vulnerable members of our society and I am so incredibly grateful to have you as a valued partner as we work to advance a culture of life that recognizes the value and dignity of the lives of those most vulnerable.

On this National Philanthropy Day, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your philanthropy and your continued partnership with National Right to Life. God bless you for all you do on behalf of His most defenseless children.

For Life,
Carol Tobias, President
