2011 Class Boosts Omega Circle Over 200 Members

November 8, 2011

The AFP Foundation for Philanthropy and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy – Canada honored 28 members of the 2011 Omega Circle Class at an induction dinner held in Montreal, Canada, during the Leadership Academy in mid-October.  Inspired by their Chapter President, Sean D. Hammerle, CFRE, who made his third planned gift this year, all 11 members of the Executive Board of the AFP Greater Houston Chapter joined the 2011 Class.

Members of the 2011 class bring the total Omega Circle membership to an all-time high of 207.  “All AFP members can celebrate and take pride in this great accomplishment, and the magnificent investment in the future of our profession that these Omega Circle members represent,” said Gary L. Good, CFRE, chair of the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy.

Serving as master of ceremonies for the evening honoring the 2011 inductees who made a planned gift to AFP of $5,000 or more, Good presented each new member the coveted Omega Circle pin. He encouraged them and all Omega Circle members to wear their pins as a visible symbol of their vision and leadership.

“Making a planned gift is a highly individual commitment – one that evokes passion and brings great joy to the giver. It is an unparalleled and personal opportunity to leave a legacy that will enrich our profession in years to come,” said Good. In welcoming the new members to the 2011 Omega Circle Class, AFP acknowledges the investment each and every Omega Circle member has made to advance ethical and effective fundraising far into the future.
