Celebration of Giving

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 2024, we will celebrate philanthropy and the work the Community Foundation is doing on behalf of our region on November 13, an evening event at the Convention Center. More details on the honorees and program will be available later.

Learn more about our past honorees.


Professional Advisor Events

Regularly scheduled events are planned for professional advisors — accountants, analysts, attorneys, trust officers, wealth managers, and other financial professionals who work with charitably inclined individuals and families — so they understand how we can help them.
