First American Equipment Finance has been named Outstanding Corporation by the Genesee Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and will be recognized on National Philanthrophy Day at a celebration held at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
The event will be held on National Philanthrophy Day, a day that commemorates the great contributions of the people active in the Greater Rochester philanthropic community to the enrichment of the world.
National Philanthrophy Day was originally organized by Douglas Freeman in the 1980s, and the first official events were held in 1986 after President Reagan signed the official proclamation. The day provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. It celebrates the daily contributions that individuals and organizations make to countless causes and missions.
