O’Donnell & Naccarato was nominated by the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia to receive the 2021 Faces of Philanthropy Award from the Philadelphia Business Journal.
O’Donnell & Naccarato Structural Engineers has had a long-standing philanthropic partnership with the ACE Mentor Program of America and the local affiliate, ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia. We are proud of our partnership and are honored to have been nominated for the Faces of Philanthropy Award. Anthony Naccarato (PE, SECB), President of O&N, is a founder of the Philadelphia affiliate and currently serves on the ACE National Advisory Council. O&N Principal, Brian Rawlings (PE, SECB) currently serves as the Board Secretary. Melissa Raffel, Affiliate Director of ACE Greater Philadelphia, nominated O&N for this award. Here is an excerpt from the nomination:
“When safety concerns around the global pandemic prompted us to cancel our largest fundraiser, the Annual Scholarship Breakfast, postpone the Golf Outing until the Fall of 2021, and delay the increasingly well attended Giant Jenga event until February 2022, Rawlings and his colleagues from O&N stepped up and became invaluable advocates. He and ACE’s Development Committee campaigned to raise $70,000 for ACE Greater Philadelphia to facilitate continued programming to high school students and, for the 20th year in a row, provide impactful scholarships to graduating seniors.”
O&N continues to expand our partnership with ACE Mentor Programs in both Indiana and New Jersey.
