6/20/11 – June Bradham to Receive AFP Lowcountry Chapter's 2011 Outstanding Professional Fundraiser Award
(Charleston, SC) – June 20, 2011 - June Bradham, founder and president of the Charleston-based consulting firm Corporate DevelopMint will be recognized by her peers June 20 for her outstanding contributions, leadership and example within the Lowcountry’s philanthropic community.
The Outstanding Professional Fundraising Award will be presented by the S.C. Lowcountry Chapter of the international Association of Fundraising Professionals at the chapter’s annual summer institute. The award is presented to a professional fundraiser with at least 10 years’ experience in the field who has given back to the fundraising community through education and trainings, been a leader in the local and international operations of AFP, and set an example of excellence, ethics and success for other fundraising professionals to follow. Bradham has earned her Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) credentials from the international association, recognizing demonstrated personal achievement and commitment in the field.
The Summer Institute and the awards luncheon are both open to the public. For information or to register, visit www.afplowcountry.com.
Bradham was nominated by Marc Chardon, CEO of Blackbaud, who described June as “a CFRE with extensive experience in major gift fundraising and strategic planning.” As the president of her own consulting company, Corporate DevelopMint, for more than 20 years, Bradham has managed more than 50 campaigns, has served on local and international AFP boards, and is a resource for philanthropists and fundraisers on the national level, Chardon said. She has also recently published her first book, The Truth About What Board Members Want, the product of more than 30 years of fundraising experience coupled with interviews with some of the most engaged charitable board members in the world.
“Although she is a dedicated board member, volunteer and donor, the biggest gift June has given this community as a volunteer has been her mentoring work,” Chardon said. Bradham’s nomination was supported by numerous support letters from nonprofit leaders in many areas of the local nonprofit community.
This will be the second year the award has been presented by the Lowcountry AFP chapter. The first award, presented last year, went to Jim Fisher, vice president for development and alumni affairs at the Medical University of South Carolina.
