Foundation Releases First Semi-Annual Newsletter

May 30, 2006

(May 30, 2006) AFP Foundation for Philanthropy has released its first newsletter, The Steward. Published semi-annually, The Steward focuses on projects that the foundation helps to fund, as well as the donors that make those projects happen. 

Audrey P. Kintzi, ACFRE, chief advancement officer for the Girl Scout Council of St. Croix Valley in St. Paul, Minn., and chair of the foundation’s marketing and communications committee, is excited about the newsletter’s debut. “One of the committee’s goals is to let everyone know how their generous support allows the foundation to accomplish our work promoting ethical and effective fundraising. The Steward is an essential vehicle for this type of communication.” 

In the Spring 2006 edition, members will find a spotlight on Barbara L. Ciconte, CFRE, senior vice president for Donor Strategies, Inc., in Chevy Chase, Md., and the first member of the Leadership Society. A full article on the Leadership Society, including a list of charter members is on page 3. (An updated list of charter members from the May 15 eWire is available here.)

An article on page 2 features the endowment fund started last year to honor Ron L. Carroll, CFRE. The Ron and Pam Carroll Endowment for International Development of AFP Chapters will fund initiatives to expand AFP’s presence globally. Through this growing endowment fund, the foundation honors one of its long-standing advocates. 

“My hope is that The Steward will keep our donors and members updated on the foundation’s activities,” says Curtis C. Deane, CFRE, CAE, president of the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy, “so that they see the value and the impact of their support.”
