It is with enormous respect, gratitude and pride that we announce that our very own, inimitable Cedric Brown has been selected to receive a national honor. He has been chosen by the Association of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE) as the 2010 recipient of the Emerging Leader in Philanthropy Award.
Cedric is being celebrated as an outstanding individual whose innovative leadership promotes philanthropy as a means of social change in Black communities and advances ABFE’s mission. His award will be officially presented at the Council on Foundations annual meeting in April in Denver.
Cedric worked as the head of the education programs at the Level Playing Field Institute for five years before moving over three years ago to head the Mitchell Kapor Foundation. It has been a distinct pleasure, honor and learning experience to work with Cedric for these past eight years.
Cedric is building an innovative approach to philanthropy at the Foundation, one which reflects our shared commitment to make the world a fairer place and stewards philanthropic efforts that focus on African American communities. Please join us in congratulating him on his well-deserved recognition.
