Joe Kramp, Senior Director of Development for the FSW Foundation, has earned the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) certification.
“What I enjoyed about earning this certification is enhancing my knowledge and expertise when it comes to helping my donors. I like working with them to realize how their desire to help not only has a long-lasting impact, but is also satisfying for them,” he said.
CAP® holders “become members of a growing network of top planners who are working to make our towns and cities better places to live for generations to come. Courses provide an insight into the process of philanthropic planning, including, but not limited to, tax, tools and techniques.”
“The study and dedication needed to earn the CAP® requires a true commitment of time,” said Susan DeSantis, Assistant Vice President, Institutional Advancement, and Executive Director, FSW Foundation. “Joe demonstrates a high level of care. He takes the time to get to know his donors so that he can assist them in directing their generosity for the best possible use and impact.”
The FSW Foundation’s Legacy Society is one way that donors can fulfill their wishes to help others. A commitment of $10,000 or more qualifies a donor for the FSW Legacy Society. The donor gets his or her name on the leaf of a beautiful tree that is proudly displayed in the Rush Gallery. Certain Legacy gifts can also benefit from opportunities that provide income, tax shelters and other financial advantages.
