This year, the AFP Greater Dayton Region Chapter is pleased to recognize eight outstanding organizations in the community who found ways to RISE UP over the last year and a half.  These organizations and individuals acted quickly, pivoted gracefully, and found new opportunities to serve the Greater Dayton community in impactful ways.

  • Charles D. Berry Foundation

  • Dayton Children's Hospital

  • The Foodbank Dayton

  • Goodwill-Easter Seals Miami Valley
