Happy Wednesday! The joke’s on you. Celebrate nonprofits everywhere.

Today is National Nonprofit Day!

#NationallNonprofitDay #lNonprofitDay #NND

National Nonprofit Day “recognizes the goals and positive impacts nonprofits have on communities and the world.” It takes place on August 17th because the Tariff Act of 1894 was signed into law that August—purportedly on August 17th. The law imposed the first federal income taxes on corporations but made exemptions for charitable institutions and nonprofit corporations. With some exceptions, nonprofit organizations are still exempt from taxes today.

How to Observe National Nonprofit Day

A few ways you could take part in the day include:

  • Learn more about, support, or apply for a job with a nonprofit.
  • Start your own nonprofit.
  • Share about the day and nonprofits on social media and accompany your posts with the hashtags #NationalNonprofitDay and #NND. If you are part of a nonprofit, share what the organization is along with its logo, photos, and information about its mission.
  • Check out the National Nonprofit Day Facebook page.
  • Explore the website of the Philanthropy Alliance Foundation, an organization created by Sherita J. Herring, the founder of National Nonprofit Day.
