from the desk of Adam Stanfield, Executive Director
Our campus is abuzz these days with our continued movement to a better and brighter SPCA Florida! We are excited at the prospect of bringing two local talents to our team to build out our Philanthropy team. Stacy Williams, CFRE is our new Director of Philanthropy and Hope Bogel will be our Community and Special Events Coordinator. Stacy and Hope bring a wealth of experience to SPCA Florida in terms of Fundraising and Event Planning, all of which we will utilize to bring you a new and exciting Philanthropy experience.
With Stacy’s leadership, you will soon learn of new ways you can provide support for SPCA Florida and all of the animals we serve throughout our community. Aside from our well known Walk and Auction for the Animals, you will hear about our Women’s Giving Circle (WGC), Planned Giving, and Bequest opportunities. Each of these new offerings can provide a unique approach in meeting your Philanthropic interests.
Our WGC members will become influential in helping drive the growth and development of SPCA Florida. Your connections in the community will prove fruitful in bringing new relations to our team and support for our organization. I would be remiss too, if I failed to mention the social aspect also that will be core our WGC concept.
Planned Giving is as it sounds. You, Stacy and Hope will evaluate your interest and support of SPCA Florida to determine ways to make your gift last a lifetime and beyond. This is a new concept for many individuals who are then rewarded knowing they will have a permanent, personal attachment to SPCA Florida through time.
Bequests are an up and coming way for individuals to express their Philanthropic aspirations into perpetuity. Working with SPCA Florida’s Philanthropy Department, we will bring together a team of individuals who can provide you the necessary tools to ensure your legacy is created and administered as per your wishes. Again, a novel concept for those interested in helping to continue to sustain their giving, bequests are a creative way to achieve your goals.
I encourage you to contact SPCA Florida today to meet Stacy and Hope and let them help you provide a meaningful and lasting gift to serve the underserved and those without a voice who also live in our community.
