The awards are given annually by the National Ethnic Coalition of organizations (NECO) in recognition of leaders who are philanthropic, who preserve and celebrate the values of their ancestry group, and who promote tolerance and acceptance.

Over 10,000 nominations are received each year, and this year 98 were presented at an awards ceremony held in the Great Hall on Ellis Island in New York Harbour. The awards are recognized by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate, and are read into the congressional record.

Mahjoor was selected by NECO for his dedication to humanitarian efforts globally. The American Red Cross publically recognized Mahjoor and his companies for their support of Superstorm Sandy disaster relief efforts. He recently abseiled over 1000 feet of the Shard skyscraper (London, UK) to raise funds for The Outward Bound Trust educational charity, and sponsored the making of over 200,000 meals for starving children in developing countries at Phenomenex companies in the USA and Italy.

Mahjoor said: “I am very humbled to have received this honor alongside such an extraordinary and distinguished group of honorees. What a selfless and inspirational group of people who understand how meaningful and important it is to help those less fortunate and to give back.” He added: “It pleases me greatly that in my lifetime I’ve had the opportunity to make a difference in the world, even if in a very small way.”
