Scholarships for Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®)
There is a temporary hold on scholarships as we secure funding for this program.
To mark the milestone of awarding our 100th scholarship, we interviewed our 1st scholarship recipient, Ginni Galicinao, CAP®, to see how she's using her CAP® Designation.
CAP® Scholarships ~ How it All Started:
In 2010, AiPF was named a recipient of the Eva Marder Charitable Remainder Trust. The donation was earmarked specifically for $500 CAP® Scholarships and allowed the Foundation to award 68 scholarships. Les Winston, AiPF President, gave us the story behind the Eva Marder Charitable Remainder Trust gift:
Eva Marder was a hard working retail merchant alongside her husband David. For many years, they owned a ladies wear store near Lincoln Road on what is today known as South Beach, Florida. The business was successful and operated until they retired in 1981. Evie's life was thrown into upheaval when David died soon after retirement, and she was left alone to handle everything that had been done by David for all the years they were married.
I met Evie in 2000 through a referral from a
client. Evie was 85 at the time and had been managing her own plans and
investments. She had recently gone through some medical issues, and she
became very anxious about her future.
