Presented by Brenda Asare - President and CEO, Alford Group

Women GiveThe IUPUI Lilly Family School of Philanthropy released a new report called Women Give 2019: Gender and Giving Across Communities of Color. This report examines the giving patterns, priorities, and attitudes of America’s wealthiest households and, in particular, explores the intersection of race, gender and giving. In 2019, The Alford Group celebrates its 20th consecutive year as AFP’s diversity sponsor and partner. We will speak to the new report and context it with our history and first-hand knowledge/experience on this topic.

LaTanya FlixThis topic is crucial to the sustainability of our industry/sector. Demographics are changing and we must change with the times. Participants can expect to learn:

  • The findings from a new body of research exploring race, gender and giving
  • Insights into how to further diversity the nonprofit sector and philanthropic donor base

NPD Honoree Profile
Dr. William & Holly James
Outstanding Philanthropist
Nominated by William Garbe, ProMedica Foundations

Dr. William & Holly James

William and Holly James: Partners in life and in work.  Dr. and Mrs. William James founded DECA Health, Inc. and Comprehensive Centers for Pain Management (CC4PM) in 2003 with the singular mission to improve the delivery of acute and chronic pain management services in North West Ohio and South East Michigan.  CC4PM provides full multidisciplinary approach and patient focused care for even the most challenging patients.  Since its inception, CC4PM has collaborated with area ProMedica hospitals and physicians to provide seamless service to patients.

Dr. William & Holly James

The James’ second child Katy was born two months premature under emergency conditions. Born lifeless, she spent her first several weeks in Toledo Children’s NICU.  Thankfully, with the loving and expert care of the entire team of NICU staff and physicians, Katy not only survived, but flourished. Though bothered by spastic diplegia, scoliosis and dyslexia, Katy has brushed away the physical and learning challenges to be an outstanding student and citizen.

Philanthropy comes easily for Holly, who has volunteered for the Toledo Hospital Auxiliary and Toledo Academy Alliance, serving one year as its President. Along with other Toledo area community, religious, and school organizations, she volunteered for Second Chance and the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP) in Colorado, for which Katy was a poster Child and ribbon cutter for their new facility in 2009.

 

Dr. William & Holly James

TASP was developmentally important for Katy and she gave back by donating her time to other, younger, students in the program.  Katy also volunteered at Ronald McDonald House and spent time reading to seniors at Toledo area nursing homes.  Katy also helped bring theater to the underprivileged in the Bahamas out islands and north Bali as part of a student group from Telluride “Mud Butts.” Katy loves the stage, loves speech (and has won awards) and never turns away from the microphone.  She has served as Ohio’s Miss Buckeye State when 10 years old and was Miss Colorado Pre-Teen and Miss Colorado Junior Teen as well.

Dr. William & Holly James

Despite Dr. and Mrs. James’ time and support given to these organizations over the years, they were looking to help in a more impactful way. That opportunity surfaced in the form of sponsoring NICVIEW–a secure interactive video platform that allows family members to connect remotely with patients and families in the NICU.  The choice to support Toledo Children’s Hospital was easy. Dr. and Mrs. James, along with their family, committed to launch and support “Katy’s Connection”—cameras for all 60 of their NICU beds—for the benefit of the families and patients in the Toledo Children’s NICU.

Dr. William & Holly James

Holly James, RN, and William James, MD, both began their careers at Toledo Hospital and Toledo Children’s Hospital.  Holly worked as an RN in Cardiac Recovery and General Recovery. William practiced Anesthesiology at Toledo Hospital, Flower Hospital and Toledo Children’s Hospital.

NPD Honoree Profile
YiPEE
Youth in Philanthropy
Nominated by Leadership Toledo

YiPEE

Youth in Philanthropy Encouraging Excellence – or YiPEE, for short – is a program for high school juniors and seniors wishing to learn more about community needs and the elements of thoughtful giving. Established by Toledo Community Foundation and facilitated by Leadership Toledo, the program’s goal is to establish a foundation for a lifelong commitment to leadership, volunteerism, and philanthropy.

YiPEE

Within this unique program, students identify key problems facing their peers, solicit and review grant applications from local youth-serving organizations, and raise and allocate funds to deserving area non-profits to address those needs.

YiPEE

Since its inception in 1998, YiPEE has dispersed 100 grants totaling over $198,000. Not only do students execute their own fundraising initiatives, they take on the challenge of deciding exactly where their donor dollars go at the end of the program year.

YiPEE

Emma Baumgartner, YiPEE and Perrysburg High School alumna, summed up her experience with YiPEE by saying, “I always thought of myself as ‘just a kid,’ but this program treated me as an equal by putting me on the same playing field as adults. I was taken seriously for the first time as a teenager, and I think it helped me mature and discover my values faster. I had no idea how many non-profit organizations there were in Toledo, especially ones that exist to better the community. To assist them as catalysts for positive change makes me so proud of my hometown.”
