The New-York Historical Society  presented Kimberly B. Davis, President of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, with a distinguished service award at the annual Strawberry Festival Luncheon on Thursday, May 6. The event, celebrating women in philanthropy, began at 12:00 p.m. and concluded at 2:00 p.m., at the Metropolitan Club on Fifth Avenue and 60th Street.

As President of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Kimberly Davis oversees the firm’s global philanthropic giving, employee volunteerism and strategic corporate programs. In 2009, the JPMorgan Chase Foundation gave more than $100 million through grants and sponsorships to thousands of not-for-profit organizations globally under Ms. Davis’ leadership. She ensures that the firm’s Foundation meets its simple philanthropic goal: target our highest needs communities worldwide for meaningful, positive and sustainable change.

Ms. Davis’s professional background in financial services has included sales, marketing, product management, strategic development and HR Development. She brings a skill set that sets her apart as an insightful and creative leader.

Ms. Davis is a graduate and trustee of Spelman College, as well as a trustee of the Kenan Institute at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. She is on the boards of The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC), The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) and the Women’s Philanthropy Institute - Indiana University. In 2004, Ms. Davis served as the founding co-director of the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (LEADS) at Spelman College, and developed, designed and implemented a national conference focused on the leadership development of women of color, which has become an annual event hosted by LEADS at Spelman College.


Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum has served as president of Spelman College since 2002. Her tenure as a president has been marked by a period of innovation and growth. Spelman College, long recognized as the leading educator of women of African descent, is now one of the most selective women’s colleges in the United States. In addition to being an accomplished administrator, Dr. Tatum is widely recognized as a scholar, teacher, race relations expert and leader in higher education. A clinical psychologist by training, her areas of research include racial identity development, and the role of race in the classroom. The recipient of numerous honorary degrees, in 2005 Dr. Tatum was awarded the prestigious Brock International Prize in Education for her innovative leadership in the field. Her best-selling titles include Can We Talk About Race And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation (2007) and Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race (1997). She is also the author of Assimilation Blues: Black Families in a White Community (1987).

The Strawberry Festival is an annual benefit which recognizes dynamic women in public life. The event traces its roots to 1856 when guests would gather for a stimulating lecture and strawberry feast. Recent honorees have included Michelle Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Christine Quinn, Betsy Gotbaum, and Kirsten Gillibrand, among others.


In support of N-YHS, Verdura presented an exclusive trunk show featuring its stunning 70th-anniversary jewelry collection. Proceeds from Strawberry Festival ticket sales and a portion of Verdura trunk show sales proceeds will benefit the programs of the New-York Historical Society, including major exhibitions and educational programs on American history. Current N-YHS exhibitions include: The Grateful Dead: Now Playing at the New-York Historical Society. Upcoming exhibitions include Nueva York (1613-1945), which opens September 17, 2010 and will explore the history of Latinos in New York from 1624 through post-World War II. Breakthrough: the Dramatic Story of the Discovery of Insulin opens October 5, 2010.
 


ABOUT THE NEW-YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Since 1804, the New-York Historical Society has served as a collective memory of New York, accumulating vast collections in both the library and the museum that include one of the finest collections of American paintings in the world. The mission of the newly revitalized Historical Society is to use these collections to help New Yorkers understand the complex and diverse issues in American history, which contributed to the world we know today.
