2010 also marks 50th anniversary for Association of
Fundraising Professionals

Dallas, TX – December 7, 2010 The Greater Dallas Chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals, with presenting partner Communities Foundation of Texas, proud partners in philanthropy, honored six recipients of the 25th Annual National Philanthropy Day Awards on Friday, November 12, 2010, at the Hyatt Regency Dallas.   The Honorable Ann Margolin presented a City of Dallas Proclamation declaring November 12, 2010, National Philanthropy Day, recognizing the golden anniversary of the international Association of Fundraising Professionals, the 25th anniversary of the local chapter, and the 2010 awardees.  Joe Dealey, a community leader and member of one of Dallas’ first families as great-grandson of George Bannerman Dealey, founding publisher of The Dallas Morning News, addressed 50 years of philanthropy in Dallas during the luncheon.  The event was emceed by long-time supporter Scott Murray with luncheon chair Diana Marquis and co-chairs Tanya Downing and Rebecca Rhule.

“We are proud to present and pay tribute to these outstanding individuals who have exhibited such incredible civic and charitable stewardship,” said Diana Marquis, Dallas National Philanthropy Day Chair.  “In celebration of the 50th anniversary of AFP, we provided at each attendee’s place a set of trivia cards with questions revolving around the last 50 years of philanthropy and current events in Dallas.  The cards will also be used when presenting career workshops about philanthropy in high schools and colleges.”

2010 Award recipients:

The Hallam Family (Outstanding Philanthropist): the personal contributions from the Hallam family and their company, Ben E. Keith, reach beyond generous monetary and product contributions.  Their multi-generational involvement in the community has been evident, from the late Edith and Gaston Hallam, to their sons, Robert, Howard, John and six grandchildren. The Hallam family’s impact is evident in the arts, education, social services, healthcare, and their churches.  For the past seven years, Howard Hallam has been the Chair of the AT&T Performing Arts Center Board of Directors, where fundraising efforts have resulted in over $325 million for the construction of the Margo and Bill Winspear Opera House, Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Annette Strauss Artist Square, and the Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park.

The Sammons Dallas Foundation (Outstanding Foundation), sponsored by Baylor Health Care System: The late Charles A. Sammons, a visionary with a generous heart, established a high standard of personal and corporate responsibility to the City of Dallas.  He created the Sammons Dallas Foundation as the vehicle by which he and Sammons Enterprises, Inc. would provide long-term support to six designated beneficiaries: Baylor Health Care System Foundation, Methodist Health System Foundation, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Communities Foundation of Texas, The Salvation Army in Dallas County and the educational trust fund of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas. In 2009 the foundation provided a $100 million gift to the six beneficiaries.

AT&T (Outstanding Corporation), sponsored by Constant Contact: Through philanthropic initiatives and partnerships, AT&T has a long history of supporting projects that create learning opportunities, promote academic and economic achievement, and address community needs.  In 2009, AT&T Pioneers and other employees donated 8.5 million hours of time to community outreach while $155 million was contributed through corporate, employee and AT&T foundation giving programs, locally, nationally, and internationally.

Cecile P.  Bonte (Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser), sponsored by
Dini Partners:  Known for her willingness, professionalism and fundraising expertise, Cecile M. Bonte has been involved in a leadership capacity in numerous fundraising campaigns for over 35 years.  She has been executive director of the Mental Health Association of Dallas, a hospital director of medical and surgical nursing, and senior vice president of a national home health care company. She retired in 1991 to be a full-time volunteer and has given of her time and talents to organizations including the Dallas Arboretum, Dallas Opera, and The Science Place, bringing enormous success and support to every project with overwhelmingly effective strategy.

David Krause (Outstanding Fundraising Executive), sponsored by
Brigham Hill Consultancy
:  Krause has a 35-year career in philanthropy serving three prominent health care organizations: Baylor Health Care System Foundation, Children’s Medical Center, and Parkland Foundation, where he is currently president and CEO.  Presently he is overseeing a
$150 million campaign toward the new $1.3 billion, 862-bed Parkland Hospital scheduled to open at the end of the year in 2014 with more than $90 million received so far. 
Notably, while at Children’s Medical Center as senior vice president of development, Krause oversaw the successful $150 million wePromise expansion campaign for Children’s and supported the $15 million campaign that funded Children’s Legacy in Collin County.

Leah Prager (Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy):  For the past six years, 12-year-old Leah Prager has organized backyard carnivals to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association and raised more than $85,000. The proceeds for 2010 will benefit MDA as well as Jewish Family Services
Dallas Food Pantry, an affiliate of the North Texas Food Bank.  Approximately 350 people attend the carnival which includes games, food, entertainment and a silent auction.  Inspired by her philanthropic parents Erica and Bill, longtime MDA volunteers, Leah wanted to do something to help a friend and others with muscular dystrophy, and in the process she has inspired many friends to embrace the concept of giving to others.

The Greater Dallas Chapter of AFP was among the first to begin celebrating National Philanthropy Day in 1981.  Today, over 700 attend the luncheon which includes AFP members and community leaders.   National Philanthropy Day celebrates the great contributions philanthropy, and those who work in the philanthropic process, make to our community.  AFP Chapters involve more than 28,000 individuals in celebrating philanthropy each year. 

The National Philanthropy Day Luncheon VIP Reception was sponsored by Parkland Foundation and The Mike & Mary Terry FamilyThe luncheon media sponsor is KERA.  For further information on the Greater Dallas Chapter of Association of Fundraising Professionals, contact Madeleine Crouch at 972-233-9107, ext. 204, afpchapteroffice@afpdallas.org.
