Reed Nissan has been recognized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Central Florida Chapter (AFP-FC) with the Corporate and Foundation Engagement award in observance of National Philanthropy Day.    

Reed Nissan was recognized for its local community involvement, support of human and animal welfare groups and substantial corporate financial giving.  The dealership is well known for annual projects such as “Reed Gives Back to the Community Day,” (which awards new vehicles to deserving young people from within Central Florida’s foster care system) and “Paws In The Park” (which encourages pet adoption while raising public awareness and financial support to help shelter pets in need).

“We are humbled and honored to accept this recognition on behalf of the 250 employees throughout our company who participate in our many philanthropic and community service endeavors,” said Aaron Hill, general manager of Reed Nissan and Reed Nissan Clermont.  “Of course, none of this would be possible without the patronage of our valued customers who have done business with our dealerships over the years. This award is really about them as well.”

Reed was among other honorees at this year's 32nd Annual National Philanthropy Day Awards, which took place on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes.

“National Philanthropy Day acknowledges the entire spectrum of services that the non-profit, civic and service sectors provide, as well as the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society,” said Ashley Hickman, director of development for the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and a volunteer with the Central Florida Chapter of AFP.

The “Orlando Health Corporate & Foundation Engagement” honor is presented to corporations, corporate or public foundations that are active in philanthropy in Central Florida, and is instrumental in encouraging others to be involved.

  • Impact of direct gift support (corporate or foundation contributions) to the Central Florida community
  • Achievements accomplished through the company’s internal philanthropic efforts (employee contributions and volunteer service)
  • Encouragement and motivation given to others, especially company employees, to assume leadership roles, setting the example for philanthropy and increasing community involvement
  • Philanthropic support that has resulted in solving organizational and community challenges
