I am proud to announce our first “Do-Gooder Shout-Out”. This is our way of recognizing the good work of fund development professionals in our community, who we feel deserve more recognition and gratitude for their hard work. They can also teach us a lot about best practice in the field.

The inaugural Do-Gooder Shout-Out goes to Ethan Smith Cox and Adam Ragan at Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation for their amazing work on the capital campaign for Center on 4th, Tucson’s LGBTQ Youth Center. Today is the groundbreaking on this historic project, for which we are proud to serve as counsel. Working with them has been a dream. They are creative, professional, ethical, and 100% committed to being mission- and donor-centered. This past year we’ve raised $1.5 million toward the $1.8 million goal.

If you haven’t seen the incredibly high-caliber work they’ve done on the public phase of this campaign, check out these links:
