Cindi Brawner received the Outstanding Fundraising Professional award from the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals at their National Day of Philanthropy event November 15 in Oshkosh.
“There are many people who could have been chosen for this award,” shared Brawner. “I am very honored and humbled to have been this year’s recipient. My career in philanthropy has been successful because of the wonderful philanthropists with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work with and the supportive colleagues I have at the Catholic Foundation. It is really a team effort.”
This award is presented to an individual fundraising professional who practices his/her profession in an exemplary manner, has at least five years of professional fundraising experience, demonstrates quality of leadership and acts as a team player. The recipient must also show a commitment to continuing professional development, to fundraising and philanthropy through volunteer service and financial support of non-profit organizations.
Brawner is a senior relationship manager with the Catholic Foundation and previously served as executive director from 1997 to 2017.
