Co-founder David Simon presents Insuring A Better World Fund’s donation for the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio’s I’m a Child of Appalachia© Fund to Tracy Mann, FAO’s Director of Professional Advisor Services.
The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio, a community foundation serving the 32 counties of Appalachian Ohio, works to increase opportunities for Appalachian Ohio communities by inspiring and supporting philanthropy. With FAO’s available match opportunity made possible by the state of Ohio, Insuring A Better World Fund’s donation to the I’m a Child of Appalachia© Fund is having double the impact and will support FAO’s programming capacity today and far into the future. Currently, FAO’s regional efforts include bringing vision testing and glasses to students during their school day, better wifi service options for rural communities, pursuit of reverse scholarships to retain talent across the region, and more. If you like contributing to transformative change, you will want to get connected to FAO. Insuring A Better World Fund is honored to support the Appalachian Ohio region through the work of the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.
Insuring A Better World Fund exhibits at the 2017 NCPP in Baltimore. Insuring A Better World Fund sponsored a donation contest, giving away $18,000 to five chosen charities. IABWF received 63 entrants.
Planned giving professionals from across the charitable spectrum entered their non-profit for the chance to be selected for the top donation of $10,000 or one of the other four donations.
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 the world’s top universities. It excels in science technology engineering, math, 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. Insuring A Better World Fund is honored and overjoyed to support the University of Michigan and its many wonderful students and alumnae.
Pictured co-founders Robert Stuchiner and David Simon award IABWF’s $1,000 donation to West Virginia University Foundation. Matthew Clark and his colleague received the donation on behalf of the Foundation.
West Virginia began 150 years ago as an agriculture college and has grown into one of the world’s premiere research institutions. This month WVU sends two teams to defend its title in the NASA Mars Ice Challenge. David’s daughter, Molly, is a NASA fellow who wrote one of her papers on subterranean volcanic activity on Mars. If you are considering an investment in Mars real estate it is a must read. IABWF is happy to support West Virginia University Foundation and the education of our children.
