SUMMER UPDATE
The summer is off to a fantastic start as AADO partnered with a host of organizations to provide an opportunity for a networking event around growing the pipeline of fundraising professionals of color. More than 50 professionals of color gathered in NYC to celebrate diversity in the fundraising profession. The picture above was taken in front of Thurgood Marshall's desk at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund which hosted the event thanks to the generosity of Renee Cutting, Chief Development Officer. Other partners included AFP NYC Chapter, Women in Development, CASE, and Cause Effective.

More events are being planned for the fall so stay tuned for additional information.

Have a wonderful and safe summer!

MAY UPDATE D
MAY greetings to you all and welcome 27 new members to the AADO Network since the April Newsletter. AADO membership is now over 1,000 members strong, a long way from our humble beginnings in Atlanta when 20 of us gathered for a breakfast get-together at Georgia Tech in 1999.

I am happy to report that the AADO/CASE Conference last month was AMAZING! The keynote speakers, session facilitators, roundtable discussions, networking and friend making were all excellent and so far, the feedback from attendees has been very positive. Remember to save-the-date for next year’s Conference on Diverse Philanthropy and Leadership , which will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, April 15-17, 2020.

Enjoy the May AADO Newsletter and please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions: aadevofficers@aol.com
