Testimonial: The many benefits of nominating your donor for a National Philanthropy Day award
Michelle St. Clair, Development Officer, Community Memorial Foundation
AFP member Michelle St. Clair has good things to say about how her donor’s National Philanthropy Day award paid off in stronger relationships and sound stewardship:
“Community Memorial Foundation was proud to nominate a generous benefactor, James H. Basler of West Bend, for the 2017 AFP Leave a Legacy Award Nomination. Mr. Basler, an unassuming millionaire, designated more than $1.2 million to the Emergency Department at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Community Memorial Hospital in his will. His gift of a lifetime ensures exceptional emergency care for so many who live in the Menomonee Falls area.
“In the process of recognizing Mr. Basler, the foundation was pleased to bring together leaders, a dear friend of Mr. Basler’s and other donors. We paused to celebrate how philanthropy has impacted the hospital. In doing so, we also deepened our relationships as we enjoyed a wonderful lunch and listened to inspirational speakers. We received so many intangible rewards with our 2017 AFP award.
“Take a minute to nominate, then celebrate your donors at AFP’s National Philanthropy Day!”
