We celebrate 2009 Philanthropy Day winners

August 21, 2009

True philanthropists dig deep when times are hard, looking for innovative ways to change the world through their gifts of time, talent and treasure. On National Philanthropy Day, Nov. 12, the Alabama Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals will honor the following seven individuals and organizations, selected by a committee of past winners to represent the best of our generous community.

Jane Stephens Comer, William M & Virginia B. Spencer Outstanding Philanthropist, nominated by The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham, The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and The University of Alabama at Birmingham
Mike Warren, Outstanding Civic Leader, nominated by Children’s Hospital of Alabama; Coca Cola Bottling Company United, Outstanding Corporate Citizen, nominated by United Way of Central Alabama;
Monty Hogewood, William S. Roth Outstanding Fundraising Executive, nominated by Samford University
Tom Armstrong, Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham Outstanding Professional Advisor, nominated by Sirote & Permutt
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Birmingham, Outstanding Charitable Organization, nominated by Thompson Tractor Co.
Hannah Franklin, Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy, nominated by Childcare Resources.

Remember these names. Congratulate them if you know them and look for the results of their great work all around you. And if you want to join the official awards day festivities, you can buy an individual ticket to the event, which had some 700 attendees in 2008. Or you can honor your own special Volunteer in Philanthropy with a table purchase.

Call 250-9020 or contact the AFP office or check out the AFP website for more information. Let the celebration begin!
