  • 6. Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser Kris Kirkpatrick Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge & Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation “Kris Kirkpatrick’s leadership is tangible. You can literally feel it, and people respond. In any fundraising or leadership effort, Kris would be one of the first people I would call. He always does more than expected, on time, and with grace.” Alice D. Greer Immediate Past Chair Baton Rouge Area Foundation With quiet passion, diligence, and consistency, Kris Kirkpatrick has served Baton Rouge, and countless nonprofit organizations throughout his life. Kris first became involved as a volunteer fundraiser with Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation in 2008. As a member of the 30-person fundraising team, he quickly stood out for the manner in which he represented the organization and his commitment to its mission. He grew the roster of volunteers by 25% and increased giving by 35% during his tenure as Annual Fund Campaign Chair in 2009. In 2010, Kris served as chair for Cancer Services’ 3rd Annual Giving Program. He carried the torch for his brother, Tommy, who lost his battle with cancer. Kris made exceptional strides in capturing new donors and now serves on the board and continues to help in fundraising efforts. Kris Kirkpatrick has made a significant impact on the nonprofit community in Baton Rouge by volunteering his time and talents to support Pennington and Cancer Services, as well as BRAF, the Academic Distinction Fund, Louisiana Art & Science Museum, Prevent Child Abuse, Family Service, and the Rotary Club. 6 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 6 10/17/2011 4:33:31 PM
  • 7. Outstanding Philanthropist Pat and Don Lyle Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation Pat and Don Lyle are among our community’s most generous philanthropists. As such, they are deserving of the AFP Outstanding Philanthropist Award, according to the Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation. Pennington has been fortunate to enjoy a special relationship with the Lyles for more than 15 years. They were among the first individuals in the community to recognize the importance of supporting the Foundation’s mission. Beginning in 1995 with annual donations, they reached the highest recognition level of “Pennington 100” in 2006. In 2009 the Lyles identified an emerging dementia research program Pennington was seeking to launch under the leadership of Dr. Jeffery L. Keller. Through their immense generosity, born out of their hard work in both business and community service, the Lyles helped establish the Institute for Dementia Research and Prevention. Recently, national dementia researchers visited Pennington and noted the Institute’s rise in prominence in so short a time. According to Don Lyle, “An investment in the Pennington Biomedical Research Center supports the development of an industry that offers career professionals employment coupled with the promise of scientific breakthrough, bringing hope not only to Louisiana citizens but also to the broader community – nationally and internationally.” The Lyles’ philanthropic “investment” is a significant reason for this success and a shining example of the power that philanthropy can have. On countless occasions, according to Jennifer Winstead, PBRF President/CEO, “Pat and Don have expressed appreciation for their blessings and their example of civic responsibility in making philanthropic gifts with humble hearts and no desire for recognition is an inspiration.” The Lyles have recognized the significant needs of this community and consistently seek to meet those needs through their philanthropic giving. 7 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 7 10/17/2011 4:33:32 PM
  • 8. Outstanding Leadership in Corporate Philanthropy Capital One Bank Woman’s Hospital “Capital One Bank has always been a company where people roll up their sleeves and pitch in to get things done. At Capital One Bank, we recognize that helping to build strong and healthy communities – good places to work, good places to do business and good places to raise families – benefits everyone.” Steve Lousteau Greater Baton Rouge Market President for Capital One Bank Capital One Bank’s philanthropic mission is to build enduring community partnerships with nonprofit organizations, and considers participation and involvement a privilege and an honor. As an outstanding corporate citizen, Capital One Bank has made its presence known in this community in a big way. Baton Rouge has been the beneficiary of their generosity. Capital One Bank not only provides financial support for a myriad of charitable causes, but it has also set an outstanding example in volunteer leadership. In 2010, the bank’s associates volunteered more than 4,300 hours and presented more than $60,000 in grants to nonprofits in Baton Rouge. Capital One Bank ‘Invests For Good’ by helping to build stronger communities and innovative partnerships in Greater Baton Rouge. It orchestrates the delivery of core banking services along with specialized community development by providing education and financial literacy, and by providing philanthropic and volunteer support to generate lasting, local community support and to create a society in which all people have a chance to reach their potential. Steve Lousteau, Greater Baton Rouge Market President says “We get involved in our communities. We constantly look for ways to make a positive difference in the region. We meet with residents, listen to them, and help them uncover the unique issues that make it difficult for them to reach their goals. We then use that information to align our resources, form key partnerships, and develop and implement programs designed to unlock the potential that exists within each resident or business — and ultimately within the community itself.” 8 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 8 10/17/2011 4:33:35 PM
  • 9. Outstanding Professional Fundraiser Jeffery L. McLain, CFRE LSU Foundation Jeffery L. McLain, Vice President for Development at the LSU Foundation, has approximately 30 years of experience in higher education fundraising. According to Major General Bill Bowdon, “that alone is worthy of note, but this year is an especially fitting time to honor Jeff as AFP Outstanding Professional Fundraiser because of his involvement with the largest fundraising campaign in LSU’s history.” Since joining the LSU Foundation, gifts and pledges have nearly quadrupled. LSU successfully completed “Forever LSU,” a $750 million campaign for LSU institutions located on the Baton Rouge campus. The campaign closed with $798 million. In 2008, the LSU Foundation won the CASE District IV Grand Award in the Special Events category for “The LSU Foundation Laureate Society Gala.” Jeff’s commitment to upholding strict ethics within the LSU Foundation is our Gold Standard, and he serves gladly as a sounding board for both experienced and inexperienced fundraisers alike. He stays abreast of current trends, legislative and congressional proceedings, and their implications on the philanthropic profession. Jeff has established himself as a leader in the field and exemplifies the best of what fundraising professionals have to offer. “Jeff McLain practices his profession in an exemplary manner. He truly enjoys the work he does and cherishes the field of philanthropy. He has outstanding intuition and the ability to look at the entire continuum of an organization, size up strengths and weaknesses, and advise what full potential they might achieve. He always has a positive attitude and conveys how proud he is of his work and of his staff.” Mila Sexton, CFRE Director of Development University Lab School A native of Texas, he is married to Leah and has two daughters, Hannah and Mary, who attend high school at the LSU Lab School. He currently serves on the Boards of the LSU Museum of Art and the LSU Rural Life Museum and is a former president of the Baton Rouge AFP chapter. 9 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 9 10/17/2011 4:33:46 PM
  • 10. Outstanding Leadership in Corporate Philanthropy The LSU Foundation AFP, Greater Baton Rouge Chapter “Gifts to the LSU Foundation add a margin of excellence over and above state support and are not intended to replace state funds. Behind every gift to the LSU Foundation is an individual or organization determined to advance the quality of education, and we are honored to help them do so.” Sara Crow Director of Foundation Communications LSU Foundation Founded in 1960, the mission of the LSU Foundation is to foster private financial support for LSU, the LSU Ag Center, the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center, and the LSU System Office. The LSU Foundation encourages and receives restricted and unrestricted philanthropic gifts and bequests, and manages the investment of endowed funds and other private assets. Five values drive its work on behalf of LSU: integrity, accountability, transparency, stewardship of resources, and donor-centered development. The LSU Foundation was a critical partner in the Forever LSU Campaign. More than 61,000 LSU alumni, friends and corporations united to surpass the Forever LSU campaign’s $750 million goal. LSU supporters celebrated the kickoff of the most ambitious fundraising campaign in school history in June 2006 at an announcement event in New York. There, LSU alumnus and political commentator James Carville said, “There is no other state university more important to their state than LSU is to Louisiana.” Congressman Henson Moore, chair of Forever LSU, led a cabinet of LSU alumni and friends in a nationwide effort. The positive results of giving to LSU are evident: Forever LSU strengthened the university’s endowment for scholarships, fellowships and financial aid; funded programs that enrich student life; endowed chairs and professorships; modernized research facilities and equipped laboratories; enhanced existing programs; and initiated and supported new academic opportunities on campus and in locations worldwide. These advancements allow LSU to attract and retain outstanding students, professors and researchers and to contribute significantly to the learning and economic environments.“ 10 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 10 10/17/2011 4:33:48 PM
  • 11. Youth in Philanthropy Brighton, CoCo, Stevie and LeLe Keller LSU Laboratory School Foundation & Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center The volunteer efforts of Stevie, Brighton, CoCo and LeLe Keller include organizing groups of young and adult volunteers in order to plan and execute a number of philanthropic events to benefit nonprofit organizations in the Baton Rouge community. Charities they have supported since 2006 include the American Red Cross Fund for Katrina Relief, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, University Lab School, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and Alzheimer’s patients. 2011 marks the 6th year for the annual Les Files a’ la Mode motherdaughter luncheon and style show, which benefits Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Brighton and Coco formed this nonprofit, and LeLe has now grown into the role by helping maintain the event’s concept and overall organization. According to Mila Sexton, Development Director, University Lab School Foundation, “Brighton organized a fundraiser for the renovations of the U-High gymnasium which burned, as well as a citywide garage sale for tsunami victims and events for Alzheimer disease patients.” “Stevie, Brighton, Coco and LeLe Keller, individually and as a family, are exceptional young people focused on leading philanthropic efforts to support the Baton Rouge community. They are each truly inspired leaders, able to organize and galvanize peer and adult volunteers for a variety of successful annual philanthropic activities.” Todd D. Stevens President and CEO Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Stevie and LeLe founded their own non-profit in 2009, DISCOver A Cure. The two conceptualized, organized and hosted 4 charity middle school dances in Baton Rouge benefitting Mary Bird Perkins and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. In 2010, Stevie and LeLe helped Mary Bird Perkins expand these charity dances outside the Baton Rouge area, adding the Holla Day Hip Hop in Covington and DISCOver a Cure in Hammond. 11 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 11 10/17/2011 4:33:50 PM
  • 12. 2011 Leave A Legacy Awards Suzanne and Doug Christensen LSU Foundation Suzanne says the decision to support LSU came down to her long-standing belief in educational opportunity. “I am such a believer and a proponent of public education. I just think that everybody is entitled to a good education, and that the opportunity for a quality education should be there for everyone who can take advantage of it.” It’s easy to see that Suzanne and Doug Christensen are a couple in sync with each other. They finish each other’s sentences, share knowing smiles, and gladly open up about the things they love most in life - one of those being LSU. The Christensens chose to support LSU academics by including the LSU Foundation in their will. Suzanne and Doug are both solid, spirited Tigers that came into the LSU community in a roundabout way. Suzanne is a third generation LSU alum that initially resisted family pressure to attend LSU . She said, “After a summer without air conditioning in Chicago, I transferred to LSU and I was so happy I did.” Suzanne went on to earn her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism. Doug is a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a degree in nursing. He says the natural beauty of campus, the fun of game day, and Suzanne’s history with LSU were too much for him to resist. He says, “I feel very much adopted into the LSU family.” Suzanne says, “If my grandfather hadn’t attended and graduated from LSU, think of all the opportunities that would not have been available to him, and then think about the opportunities that wouldn’t have been available to my parents and me.” Doug concludes, “As we get older, the children and younger generations are going to be taking care of us. Even if we help one student pay it forward, then that’s a good thing.” 12 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 12 10/17/2011 4:33:57 PM
  • 13. 2011 Leave A Legacy Awards Sadie Mae Connor Keel* Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge The gift from the Succession of Sadie Mae Connor Keel will be placed in The Howell Legacy Endowment Fund. This Fund was created to guarantee that the programs and services at Cancer Services will be available to cancer patients for the next 50 years and beyond. This gift from the Estate of Sadie Connor Keel, who passed away in February 2010, will help to ensure that whatever the needs of cancer patients are in the years to come, Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge will be here to fill those needs. Cancer Services is always striving to ‘fill the gap’ between research and treatment. We are so very grateful for Mrs. Keel’s generosity to us, along with bequests to St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Bishop Stanley Joseph Ott Works of Mercy Fund, the American Diabetes Association and various friends and family members. “Sadie Mae Connor Keel was a remarkable person. Her generous heart was evident to all during her life and upon her death. Her generosity will help us and each nonprofit remembered in her will to continue to fulfill our missions. We see her gift as motivation for others to ‘Leave A Legacy’ to benefit the lives of those who follow.” Mimi Riche Executive Director Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge *Deceased 13 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 13 10/17/2011 4:33:59 PM
  • 14. 2011 Leave A Legacy Awards Janice and Gerald Pellar Baton Rouge General Foundation “Janice and Gerald Pellar are the personification of what leaving a legacy is all about. Together, they are making Baton Rouge a better community by ‘filling buckets’ that will ensure the future of those institutions they are passionate about today.” Connie Caldwell Annual Giving Manager Baton Rouge General Foundation Janice and Gerald Pellar’s connection with Baton Rouge General began many years ago when Janice’s parents were patients at the Mid City campus. There, Janice witnessed first-hand the extraordinary care provided to her mom and dad by the compassionate nurses, physicians and staff. As often happens in life, both Janice and Gerald found themselves in need of hospital care and naturally chose the General, where both experienced the community of caring that embodies Baton Rouge General. Their encounter as patients led them to take the next step - getting involved by volunteering on the General’s Foundation board and investing their dollars in supporting the mission. With no children to carry on their life’s work, the Pellars made the decision to Leave a Legacy in the three areas most important to them today. As Janice said, “We filled three buckets: one for healthcare, one for LSU and one for our faith. We want to do all we can to ensure that the things that are important to us today will be secure for the future.” Their Baton Rouge General “bucket” will be filled for ten years through a designated fund at Baton Rouge Area Foundation, which includes the chance to apply for a naming opportunity grant. In order to ensure the “bucket” stays filled for the future, they have generously named Baton Rouge General in their estate plan. 14 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 14 10/17/2011 4:34:00 PM
  • 15. 2011 Leave A Legacy Awards Kelli Richmond Woman’s Hospital Following routine surgery in 2009, Kelli Richmond was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Her doctor explained her options and she decided to seek treatment outside the state. However, “I decided to return to Woman’s Hospital because of the quality treatment and the team of nurses. The care they provide is so personal and everyone on the sixth floor knows me by name. That’s important when you’re fighting for your life, because you feel like they’re fighting with you. I was so impressed, I made a planned gift to Woman’s as a partial beneficiary of my life insurance policy. I know they perform research to prevent ovarian and uterine cancer. They also help people who cannot afford healthcare. I plan to adopt one day and I might be adopting from a mother who doesn’t have the means to take care of her child. I’ll be glad to know that some of my support helped make a difference in the community in years to come.” “Right now, the future for Kelli is uncertain, but whatever it may hold, Woman’s Hospital will be there right by her side.” Lynn Weill Vice President & Chief Development Officer Woman’s Hospital Kelli is still fighting the fight of her life. She has a new outlook on life that amazes and inspires most, but she doesn’t see her obstacle as more important or difficult than anyone else’s struggles. “I am just a woman fighting the fight God dealt her. I am doing what any other woman would do; fight for another breath. Since my diagnosis, I decided to dedicate my life to improving the quality of life for others that are going through this same battle. I will stop at nothing to make a difference. I will fight for every other woman on this earth if I have to until the day I die, whenever that shall be.” (Photo courtesy of Eye Wander Photo.) 15 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 15 10/17/2011 4:34:01 PM
  • 16. 2011 Leave A Legacy Awards Betty and Eugene Van Norman Baton Rouge General Foundation “Life can change in an instant, and Betty and Gene Van Norman know that reality all too well. They’ve chosen their legacy to be a lifetime of impacting others who suffer the same emotional experience of burn injuries that they have endured. Their gifts ensure that the same extraordinary care that saved Betty’s life will help save lives in the future.” Beth Veazey Vice President & Chief Development Officer Baton Rouge General Foundation December 6, 2009, began just like any other day for Betty and Gene Van Norman, when a household accident changed their lives forever. Betty slipped and fell into their garden bathtub, grabbing the only thing within her reach - the hot water faucet. Unconscious and clinging to life, she was rushed to The Baton Rouge General Hospital’s Regional Burn Center with 2nd and 3rd degree burns over more than 50% of her upper body. Over the next two months, Betty missed Christmas, birthdays, and ringing in the new year, while at the General fighting for her life. Throughout her recovery process, Gene and Betty experienced extraordinary care from the compassionate team in the Burn Center. They gave hope during this difficult time and fostered a desire to give back to those who cared for Betty. In 2010, the Van Normans made a generous gift dedicated to Phase 2 of the General’s Burn Center renovation project. Even furthering their selfless commitment to helping others in our community, Betty included the Baton Rouge General’s Regional Burn Center in her estate plan. 16 NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 16 10/17/2011 4:34:09 PM

  • 19. It’s normal for little boys to be into trucks… Dayton actually survived being trapped under one. When six-year-old Dayton was accidentally run over by a truck in his driveway, he suffered a traumatic brain injury. He was airlifted from his hometown of Basile, Louisiana to Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge where surgeons and specialized care teams saved his life. Every year we provide advanced pediatric care for thousands of critically injured children from Louisiana and beyond, just like Dayton. Making sure kids can be kids. We believe in making things better for children. Congratulations to the National Philanthropy Day honorees. ololchildrens.org A Not-For-Profit Children’s Hospital NPD 2011 10171 PM.indd 19 Member Organizations 10/17/2011 4:34:10 PM
