[San Jose, CA] AACI congratulates Board Chair Patrick Kwok for being selected to receive recognition as a Distinguished Volunteer Fundraiser at Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day 2016.
“Patrick is a wonderful board chair who leads by example,” said Michele Lew, former President and CEO at AACI. “He is always among the first to give when we ask, and he asks others to give as well.”
Each year, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP)’s premier event Silicon Valley Philanthropy Day is held in conjunction with National Philanthropy Day. This community event, a celebration of excellence in local philanthropy, is attended by over 700 fundraisers, community leaders, and philanthropists.
