A Legacy of Philanthropy

by PA College October 27, 2017

The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of The Association of Fundraising Professionals recently announced the 2017 National Philanthropy Awards, and Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is pleased to celebrate with Board of Trustees member, Kenneth G. Stoudt, on his recognition as Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year.

Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year honors an individual or family that demonstrates outstanding skills in coordinating and motivating groups of volunteers for fundraising projects for the benefit of charitable institutions. The nominee must have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills in coordinating groups of volunteers for major fundraising projects for more than one nonprofit organization. Ken’s commitment to philanthropy is shaped by his modesty, his big heart and his unshakable ethics.

Through passionate advocacy and committed leadership, as well as his personal philanthropy, Ken has helped organizations, including Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, where he served as chair of our Building Futures Campaign. His expert guidance led a group of 10 volunteers to exceed the fundraising goal by more than $2.5 million. Founder and retired CEO of StoudtAdvisors, Ken has generously shared his entrepreneurial heart and community enthusiasm through service on various boards throughout Lancaster County – Lancaster General Hospital, the United Way of Lancaster County, the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Lancaster Economic Development, Moravian Manor Retirement Community, the Milagro House and more. His dedication to the continued growth and well-being of Lancaster County is second to none.

Ken was honored among friends during the awards ceremony held Wednesday, Oct. 25.
