Community Foundation Events
An Evening Out At Home
Our annual gala gets its name from the event’s unique approach. Guests start the evening with delectable dinners in host homes before convening at a special venue for dancing and a dessert reception. Due to COVID, we have not been able to gather in person since our 2019 event.
Gifts for Good
In celebration of our 50th anniversary, the Community Foundation is providing free admission to a variety of museums and arts and cultural events throughout our region on select days from April 2022 through March 2023.
50th Anniversary Gala
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 2022, we’re combining our annual award ceremony with our 50th anniversary gala on Saturday, September 17 at Rochester Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Click here to get details and register.
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. These events typically include an Open House in October, a free, non-credit seminar in February, and a fun, casual summer or fall social.
These free and informative events focus on the Foundation’s goals in equity and vitality.
