M. Fabrikant & Sons recently became a benefactor of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), donating generously to support GIA's ongoing research and educational efforts. The company's gift will be invested in GIA's permanent endowment fund, which was created to provide a perpetual source of income for GIA education and research. Only the interest generated from the account is used to fund such efforts. In recognition of the manufacturer's donation, GIA will honor the company at this month's League of Honor Dinner. Induction into the League of Honor is reserved for organizations and industry leaders who have contributed $100,000 or more to GIA.
