Community Foundation Events

Evening Out

In June 2023, we transitioned our long-standing event An Evening Out At Home — created for fundraising and friendraising — to Evening Out with the Arts. If you would like to receive invitations to future Evening Out events, sign up here.

Philanthropy Awards and Report to the Community

Each year since 1991, Philanthropy Award recipients have been recognized for their creative and effective giving that inspires others while strengthening the communities in greater Rochester’s eight counties.

In 2023, we’ll celebrate philanthropy and the work the Community Foundation is doing on behalf of our region on Thursday, September 21 at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Receiving Philanthropy Awards are Donald S. Hall (Joe U. Posner Founders Award), H. Todd Bullard and Drs. Krishan and Jaimala Thanik. For more information about the event, click here.

Professional Advisor Events

Regularly scheduled events are planned for professional advisors — attorneys, accountants, financial planners, insurance agents, and others who work with charitably inclined individuals and families — so they get to know how we can help them.
