Cape and Islands United Way announces Sand Dollar Leadership Society – Founder’s Circle
The Cape and Islands United Way officially announces the Sand Dollar Leadership Society – Founder’s Circle, a newly-formed group of influential year-round and seasonal residents dedicated to long-term giving for the Cape and Islands United Way. The group’s next social gathering to discuss their innovative vision for philanthropic leadership will take place on Thursday, April 14, 2011 from 5:30pm to 7:30 pm at the Boston College Club at 100 Federal Street in Boston, MA.
Spearheaded by John V. Murphy, former Chairman and CEO of Oppenheimer Funds and current Managing Director of Korn/Ferry International , as well as Jack Brennan, Chairman Emeritus of The Vanguard Group along with their spouses, Kathleen Murphy and Cathy Brennan, the Sand Dollar Leadership Society – Founder’s Circle was first formulated at a gathering with other luminaries of the finance and investment world at the Harvard Club in the Fall of 2009, then unofficially launched in the Spring of 2010.
During the first 10 months the Sand Dollar Leadership Society – Founder’s Circle has welcomed 18 founding members committed to a giving level of at least $5,000 per year for 5 years. This commitment, exceeding $150,000, represents more than $50,000 of immediate new giving to the Cape and Islands United Way where 99.1% of all money raised here remains local.
Richard Brothers, President of the Cape and Islands United Way said, “the commitment by these families and individuals goes beyond personal giving. Most feel so strongly, they have personally endorsed this effort to many friends and colleagues. Further exemplifying the level of commitment, Cathy Brennan, full-time Philadelphia resident and part-time Cape Cod resident has taken a position on the Cape and Islands Board of Directors.
