Co-founder, Robert Stuchiner, blows out the candles celebrating his 60th birthday.
Despite being severely visually impaired, Robert only recently had to stop skiing and rollerblading. And at a time long before cell phones that read your messages, Robert’s accomplishments in the life insurance industry marvel and rival the best and brightest in the industry.
Robert and his wife, Judy, are committed to philanthropy and the success to help fund charities seeking cures for disease. Cures would not only affect Robert, but also one of his own children who is diabetic. The money lost in valuable life insurance policies is there to help. IABWF has donated to National Federation of the Blind, Foundation Fighting Blindness and Diabetes Research Institute to help fund these organizations.
Robert’s birthday wish is for his career focus on IABWF to make the wishes of countless other charities come true.
Co-Founders Robert Stuchiner and fist pumping David Simon present the top donation of $10,000 to The University of Michigan Sally Baker, Carine Hails & Donna Snyder laugh it up over David’s alma mater receiving the gift.
The University of Michigan is one of the nation’s and the world’s top universities. It excels in science technology engineering and math, as well as business and the liberal arts. When David entered in the fall of 1976 the Wolverines were the top ranked football and basketball team.
David’s wife, Pam, is also a Michigan alumnus (years later) graduating from the school with a business degree.
Congratulations to the maize and blue. IABWF is honored and overjoyed to support the University of Michigan and its many wonderful students and alumnae.

David’s father, Sheldon, of blessed memory, served in the war and several members of his family were killed in the Holocaust. This war plays a unique role in our world’s history.
These are lessons and people that can never be forgotten. IABWF’s fulfills its mission to support veterans and education, blended into this great museum.
“Ranked by USA Today as the #1 best place to learn US military history and designated by Congress as America’s official museum features a rich collection of artifacts that bring history to life”. IABWF is proud to support our National World WWII Museum.
Compassion International was a $1,000 NCPP donation winner. David Simon is pictured handing over the check to Sheri Hudson.
Sheri Hudson was our happiest winner. The charity focuses on children and poverty. This charity speaks directly to the IABWF mission.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with Compassion International, helping them serve more impoverished children throughout the world. We agree with Compassion International, poverty is not being poor. Poverty is the lack of hope. It is with our hope that this donation is happily given.
