Exciting Developments in 2022 Q4
New leadership on the Board Since its inception, Truman Charities has emphasized the importance of the community of donors who come together to celebrate and spread joy. Our organization’s founders began with a simple house party, and this grew into a mission to hold multiple events per year with hundreds of guests and 100% of their charitable donations going to the target cause. As of December 2022, Truman Charities raised $106,000 for the year and has grossed over $1,506,000 to support others. Growth can bring exciting change, and we have been so happy to welcome a longtime participant and donor, Cynthia Hall, as the new Chair of the Board of Truman Charities.
Cindy is the President and Acting Chairman of the Board of Directors of Z FEDERAL bringing over three decades of experience in government contracting to her leadership role. She is an expert in working with small and disadvantaged businesses and in human resources. Cindy is passionate about service, as well as working in communities to directly impact and improve the lives of children. This is not her first non-profit board experience, and we are so excited for her leadership and knowledge to carry Truman Charities forward.
Cindy shares with us that "For many years, I have donated and attended Truman Charities events, where I saw the tremendous acts of giving from the community. Today, I am honored to join Truman Charities as a Board member, where I have had the opportunity to not just see but feel the generosity of what this Charity embodies."
Podcast Reaches 60+
Truman Charities Co-Founder, Jamie Truman, hosts a wonderful resource for the giving community. Her podcast, A Philanthropist’s Guide to Charitable Organizations, invites guests to engage in important, informative conversations with Jamie about their organization, providing the kind of information and inspiration that donors want to have before making the decision about where to allocate their charitable dollars. While the podcast frequently features charitable organizations in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area, many guests have a nationwide reach in their efforts to bring about positive change where they see a need.
This Fall, Jamie published Episode 60 on October 25, about an organization’s quest to fund a cure for a rare form of pediatric cancer. Since then, she has invited other guests and dealt with veterans, adopted children, and animal rescue. For Jamie, there are so many worthy causes that reach the hearts of donors, that she finds the podcast an incredible platform to give light and information about these opportunities to do good.
