The world is made of stories, take a look at some of ours.
Congratulations to Denny Young, the Program Coordinator of the Humber Fundraising Management graduate program. He is the recipient of the 2014 Outstanding Fundraising Professional award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Toronto Chapter.
Denny says "this is a recognition for my dedication to the profession, rather than for the amount of money I raised, and a huge piece of that is the teaching that I've done -- which was made possible by Ken Wyman and Humber taking a chance on me way back in 2005".
Ken Wyman, the previous program coordinator, received this honour in 1995, the first year it was given out. Dr. Bill Hallett, who teaches part time in the Humber Fundraising program won the award in 2003, and Steve Thomas, who recently stepped down as chair of the Program Advisory Committee, won it in 2002.
Humber Fundraising professor Ken Wyman was recently quoted in German newspaper Suddeutsche about the phenomenal success of the #ALSIceBucketChallenge. Congratulations Ken! Great thoughts on this global viral fundraiser!
Fundraising Management professor Ken Wyman was quoted last week in the Toronto Star talking about the unprecedented nature of the #ALSIceBucketChallenge. Great insights Ken!
