  5. 5. 5 Ralph was happiest sitting next to a pond with his grandkids, waiting for the bluegills to bite. To keep the pond stocked for his greatgrandchildren, he included a bequest to a local conservation organization in his will. Thanks to Ralph, the fish are still biting.

  6. 6. 6 Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser Lee Michael Berg has been a friend to the non-profit community since he established Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry in Baton Rouge in 1978. An integral part of the company’s corporate mission is to provide outstanding philanthropic services and financial support as well as demonstrate civic responsibility to charitable causes. He has spearheaded the company’s outstanding commitment and personally set the example for others to follow. Lee’s fundraising expertise and uncanny ability to connect with donors, eloquently expressing his passion for Cancer Services inspires the same passion and commitment in others. His philanthropic leadership encourages others, including his employees, family and friends, to be involved in their communities. In addition to his gift of time, he has directed that Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry be a generous supporter of community organizations. He contributes thousands of dollars to annual funds and special fundraising events, as evidenced by the corporation’s long record of providing fabulous auction and raffle items to non-profits. Lee leads by example through service in leadership to a wide variety of organizations, including the Louisiana Technology Park, the Better Business Bureau, the Dean’s Advisory Council for the Louisiana State University E.J. Ourso College of Business, the Baton Rouge Speech & Hearing Foundation, the Baton Rouge chapter of the National Conference for Community and Justice, the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, Woman’s Hospital, and the Community Fund for the Arts. Currently he serves on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, on the Junior League of Greater Baton Rouge Advisory Committee, and the Boards of Directors of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and Crime Stoppers. LEE MICHAEL BERG “When you think of philanthropy in Baton Rouge, there are a handful of names that always come up – Lee Berg is on the top of that list. Baton Rouge is a better place in which to live and work, because of the generous gift of time, treasure and expertise in fundraising that Lee has given to our community.” - Connie Caldwell, Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge
  7. 7. 7 Outstanding Philanthropist Huey Wilson (1928-2008) and his wife Angelina were both born and raised in Depression-era Louisiana in large families with modest means. Working together as husband and wife, the Wilsons founded a catalog showroom retail business that grew to become the largest company headquartered in Baton Rouge, employing 10,000 people and spanning 13 states by the time of its sale in 1985. That same year, the Wilsons co-founded an oil field service business in Houma, Louisiana that today employs approximately 1,800 people. The Wilsons have been blessed with substantial financial success and have dedicated a meaningful part of their wealth to the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation. Since 2000, they have awarded competitive grants to 501 c3 organizations serving the greater Baton Rouge area. In addition to his work as a philanthropist, Mr. Wilson was also involved in the Baton Rouge community as the founder and former director of the Louisiana Chapter of the National Hemophilia Association, the director of the Salvation Army, and the director of General Health, Inc. He was honored in 1980 as Man of the Year by St. Jude’s Research Hospital and by B’nai B’rith Youth Services and received the Horatio Alger National Award in 1981. Mr. Wilson was also recognized by Ernst & Young as the 2001 Master Entrepreneur. Since fall 2000, the Wilson Foundation has invested $7.8 million into the greater Baton Rouge community with 440 awards to non-profit organizations. The Foundation provides gifts that make a tremendous difference, not only to non- profit organizations, but also to the lives of each and every person the organization serves. As a result, the Baton Rouge community is stronger, children are fed, people are housed, the ill receive medicine and care, children are educated, and offenders are rehabilitated. Many non-profit organizations have the Wilson Foundation to thank for their generous funding and support. HUEY & ANGELINA WILSON FOUNDATION “ The mission of the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation is to help those persons much less fortunate than themselves. Their focus is in human services, healthcare, education and prison release in the Greater Baton Rouge area.” - Alecia Kleinpeter, Alzheimer Services of the Capitol Area, & Susan Mintz Kantrow, Public Affairs Research Council
  8. 8. 8 Outstanding Leadership in Corporate Philanthropy Turner Industries has been a part of this community almost as long as United Way has been helping the community’s people. Like individuals, corporations have the opportunity to make an impact and change lives. This effort is usually started by one or many passionate individuals. What was started by a family’s vision has transformed into a philanthropic force. Turner Industries’ leadership advocates for change in the community while setting an example for other businesses and their leaders. As a corporation in 2009, Turner Industries donated $100,000 towards programs that were helping everything from Education to HIV/Aids efforts in the Baton Rouge area. An additional $100,000 was given to organizations in need and others to give support for fundraising events. Their leadership supports Capital Area United Way’s Tocqueville Society by having the most major donors at a single company in the 10-parish area. This challenges others to step up and meet the challenges through similar contributions. Bert and Sue Turner began this tradition, which they passed along to the next generation of Turners who are still giving. With such a strong tradition, other leaders within the company have chosen to adopt this spirit of giving. Financial support will help programs, when there are volunteers complementing programs which support the mission and bring awareness to the cause. Employees at Turner have sat on countless boards, while also holding leadership roles at the company. From community foundations to the arts to historic preservation, they have been there to see the right decisions made and non-profits get the help they need. Social responsibility is an issue discussed on local, state and national levels. Turner Industries has gone beyond what they are “responsible” for doing. There are those who don’t step up, but Turner does it all. When you need assistance, Turner Industries responds with encouragement, an honest assessment, and the resources to make change. TURNER INDUSTRIES “ The vitality of a city depends on many things, including those in need and the need for an economically sound environment. Turner Industries has held board positions on the Louisiana Chemical Association, Baton Rouge Area Chamber, Association of Builders and Contractors and many others.” - Melissa Parmalee, Capital Area United Way
  9. 9. 9 CONNIE CALDWELL CANCER SERVICES OF GREATER BATON ROUGE “...Nearly every 6 weeks for many years, Connie has graciously donated platelets to the Our Lady of the Lake blood bank. She has truly saved lives and helped others through her incredible charity to our community.” - Cindy Macha, Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge Outstanding Professional Fundraiser Connie Caldwell began her journey as a professional fundraiser in our community just over ten years ago. Though she has a very diverse career background as both a dental assistant and a jewelry designer, it was only mildly surprising to friends and family when she chose to pursue the field of fundraising. If you ask anyone close to Connie, they will tell you she is one of the most passionate women in our city— highly dedicated to helping others succeed, especially when she has a strong belief in the cause for which she is serving. Since she arrived at Cancer Services, total revenue increased over $450,000. Just last year, Connie went above and beyond her budgeted fundraising goal with the assistance of a new event, the Group Industries Clay Shoot Classic, as well as with other activities that developed strong corporate relationships for Cancer Services. No stranger to the importance of a Thank You, Connie is dedicated to responding quickly and efficiently with words of thanksandgratitude.Hergenuinethoughtfulnesshasdeveloped an abundance of essential donor relationships for Cancer Services such as the Angelina and Huey Wilson Foundation, the Frost Foundation, the Pennington Foundation and many more. She is truly dedicated to the mission of Cancer Services—and has such a strong belief in the importance of assuring donors that their dollars are wisely spent. Have you ever tried telling Connie “NO?” It’s close to impossible! Bernard Meltzer once said “There is no better exercise for the heart than reaching down and helping lift someone up.” You have never seen such a petite woman lift so many people up each day, until you have spent an afternoon with Connie. She is unwavering in her ethical practices of fundraising. She has produced unmatched results for Cancer Services; and she has a consistent positive attitude that shines from within and radiates through the halls of the agency. Connie Caldwell is an outstanding professional fundraiser indeed.
  10. 10. 10 LOUISIANA ASSOCIATION OF NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS (LANO) “LANO believes in Louisiana because all of you have believed in us. We pledge to do our best work on behalf of this great state because its people deserve nothing less. Join us as we dream big dreams and make them happen.” - Ann Silverberg Williamson, President and CEO, LANO AFP Board of Directors Award The Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations (LANO) is a statewide network of nonprofits, foundations, corporations and individuals dedicated to supporting Louisiana’s nonprofit sector. Its mission is to strengthen, promote and build the capacity of nonprofits through education, advocacy and member services.

The hard-working members of LANO are testament to the value of this effort and we encourage all those interested in a better Louisiana to join us.”
  11. 11. 11 Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy In December, 2009, Abbey Simoneaux, St. Joseph’s Academy Senior and Girl Scout Ambassador for Troop 340, approached the Baton Rouge Speech and Hearing Foundation about completing her Girl Scout “Gold Award” with the BRSHF children at our clinic. Abbey chose BRSHF because her family had experience with our services, and she was very passionate about our mission. From that first meeting, we could tell through Abbey’s energetic planning that she was a “go-getter.” Several weeks later, she submitted a 40-page plan for the event, detailing the activities, staff, and supplies needed at each station, as well as an event schedule and planning timeline. In February, after visiting the clinic and observing some group language therapy sessions, Abbey and her father arrived at the Foundation with two trunks-full of supplies, from batteries to Kleenex and sterilized gloves, from our Wish List, furnished by the SJA Latin Club. On Friday morning, March 19, 2010 almost 60 members of SJA’s Beta Club were on hand at the Foundation to staff the event, called “Animal Fun Fair.” Abbey covered every aspect of planning a successful event, from preliminary research (observing the classes) to evaluation (separate feedback forms for parents and therapists). Abbey took the needs of the children that we serve into consideration, and orchestrated a very successful, multi- faceted event that delighted not just our students, but parents and therapists as well. Melissa Juneau, BRSHF’s Executive Director, commented, “When Abbey approached me about completing her Gold Award here, I didn’t know exactly what to expect. She came with a clearly designed concept that turned into an incredible project here at the foundation. “ ABBEY SIMONEAUX BATON ROUGE SPEECH & HEARING FOUNDATION “On the day of the event, she guided the group with gentle kindness. I could see that the girls looked up to her and appreciated her leadership. I just can’t say enough about how impressed I am with Abbey.” - Melissa Juneau, Executive Director, Baton Rouge Speech & Hearing Foundation
  12. 12. 12 2010 Leave A Legacy Awards Dianne Finely has a strong volunteer record at BREC’s Magnolia Mound Plantation (MMP). Since her training period, Dianne has guided thousands of tourists through the MMP Historic House, helped with special programs and events, and taught on-site classes provided to visiting school children. Additionally, Dianne encourages those around her to volunteer or donate to MMP. Dianne has stipulated a sizable portion of her estate be left to MMP after her passing. By thinking of MMP in her will, Dianne has become part of the growing network of individuals invested in the upkeep and preservation of an irreplaceable part of Baton Rouge heritage. These funds, when needed, will allow quick resolutions to upkeep problems at the Historic House. Although funds for house maintenance are budgeted every year through BREC, Dianne’s funding will go a long way towards resolving small and medium-sized issues, while preserving MMP’s budgeted funds for larger projects. Dianne has been one of MMP’s most vocal supporters, and has encouraged the docent corps to consider Magnolia Mound when deciding what to do with their estates. Dianne has done all of this while still working with the community as a part-time primary care physician. It is people like Dianne who make the work at Magnolia Mound possible. DR. DIANNE FINELY BREC’s MAGNOLIA MOUND PLANTATION “In addition to her gift, Dianne has been a house docent for over f ive years now. As part of our House Docent program, Dianne puts in over 50 hours of volunteer service a year, allowing MMP staff to work on projects that might otherwise go by the wayside.” - Steven Fullen, Director, Magnolia Mound Plantation
  13. 13. *RAYMOND GETTIER BATON ROUGE GENERAL FOUNDATION & MARY BIRD PERKINS CANCER CENTER FOUNDATION 13 2010 Leave A Legacy Awards Raymond Gettier and his wife, Mary, lived a simple life. They moved to Baton Rouge from the Baltimore area. He was employed by Uniroyal, a well-respected leader in the tire industry. The Gettiers resided in a modest house in Parkland Terrace and had no children. They were devout Catholics and very active in their church. Mr. Gettier was a meticulous planner. In 1979, after retiring from Uniroyal as a quality control manager, he began to meet with his attorney. His first estate plans were simple, “Leave everything to Mary.” Sadly, Mary passed away in 2001. After thoughtful consideration, this mild-mannered gentleman then chose to make a significant gift to healthcare. His estate was divided among three healthcare organizations, Baton Rouge General Hospital, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Funds received by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center were placed in an endowment honoring Mr. and Mrs. Gettier. The funds received by Baton Rouge General Hospital will be used to renovate the outpatient treatment wing. “Mr. Gettier was a meticulous planner...After thoughtful consideration, this mild-mannered gentleman then chose to make a signif icant gift to healthcare.” - Beth Veazey, Vice President and Chief Development Off icer, Baton Rouge General Foundation
  14. 14. DR. DAVID HANSON CANCER SERVICES OF GREATER BATON ROUGE 14 2010 Leave A Legacy Awards Since 1997, Dr. David Hanson, a local oncologist, has served four three-year terms on the Cancer Services’ Board of Directors – including service on the Executive Committee and as Board President. An extraordinarily active member of the Finance Committee, Dr. Hanson worked hard to maintain the agency’s solid financial footing. Always mission driven, he wanted to ensure that the various direct assistance and support programs offered to cancer patients was secure now and for many years to come. To that end, he was instrumental in creating the agency’s first ever Annual Giving Program and helped formalization the Howell Legacy Fund – Cancer Services’ Endowment. While no longer a member of the board, Dr. Hanson’s concern for the future of Cancer Services has not ended. In addition to designating 10% of what he contributes to Cancer Services each year to the Howell Legacy Fund, he also promotes the idea of “tithing” to the endowment from the Annual Giving Program proceeds each year. “I firmly believe that charity begins at home,” Dr. Hanson shares. “Unless we are responsible for our own community and support our fellow citizens, we cannot expect all needs to be met. We all have opportunities to make certain that the charities that are important to us continue to function. For that reason, I think it is very important that charitable giving be a part of every person’s life plan. Giving time or financial support is key. I also believe in contributing to agencies who have made provisions for their ongoing survival. For that reason, I designate 10% of my annual gift to Cancer Services to their endowment, and encourage others to do the same.” “In addition to designating 10% of what he contributes to Cancer Services each year to the Howell Legacy Fund, Dr. Hanson also promotes the idea of “tithing” to the endowment from the Annual Giving Program proceeds each year.” - Connie Caldwell, Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge
  15. 15. 15 2010 Leave A Legacy Awards Lillian Fitzgerald Hoover is a Charter Member of the 1860 Society, a prestigious group who is leaving legacy gifts through their estate plans to the LSU Foundation on behalf of the college or area of their choice. These loyal friends and alumni realize that LSU’s next century of success depends on their legacy today. With Lillian, there was never any doubt that she wanted to honor her husband, Jimmie, because of his devotion to his students. She has created a scholarship in his honor and plans to enhance this scholarship with her estate gift. Mr. Hoover was a well-respected man, not only by his peers in the Library Associations, but also by the thousands of students he assisted as Director of the Government Documents department at the LSU Library from 1967 to 1984. But, as Mrs. Hoover stated, “He was never too busy to visit with the students either at school or their home.” He mentored them about curriculum, student life on campus, and followed their careers after graduation. After his retirement from LSU, John Richard, then head of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System, convinced Jimmie to work for him at the Downtown Library. Once again, service to the library patrons was the driving force of his employment. At his death, Lillian established the Jimmie Hoover Scholarship in the School of Library and Information Sciences. She felt it was the most appropriate way to honor her husband. She keeps in touch with her recipients and attends the school’s banquet every year. Many have confided that they could not have gone to Graduate School without the aid of this scholarship. Although Jimmie is no longer with us, his memory lives on through this scholarship. The LSU Foundation is proud to name Lillian Hoover as our Leave A Legacy Award recipient. Lillian Fitzgerald Hoover LSU FOUNDATION “Lillian faithfully attends the School of Library and Information Sciences’ yearly banquet, and sits proudly with the person who was chosen to receive the Jimmie Hoover Scholarship award each year” - Jane Henslee, Associate Director, and Gwen Fairchild, Director, Planned Giving, LSU Foundation
