San Diego: A city of philanthropists

The Nonprofit Guru

 Screen Shot 2013-02-13 at 8.10.31 AM

Last week, The Chronicle of Philanthropy released an article on the 50 Most Generous Donors of 2011. Fourteen of these 5o donors live in California and Number 22 and Number 24 of that list were two of San Diego’s most well-known philanthropists.

   

America’s Finest City is home to many of the world’s most generous philanthropists who have given millions and billions to support the nearly 10,000 nonprofit organizations in San Diego County. Here is a glimpse of some of the largest gifts made by people with of big hearts in our fine city.

Joan and Irwin Jacobs (#22 on Chronicle list), founding CEO of Qualcomm, are probably the most well-known philanthropists in town for saving the arts. In 2002, the couple pledged $120 million – that remains the largest gift to an orchestra ever in the United States – to the Opera in their greatest time…

This is not easy; yet consuming ample PROTEIN is important to build, recover and increase your metabolism!

Here we come…2016

Dear friends and family;
I’m back-spacing my usual typos as I listen to a Capitol Steps file @ http://www.capsteps.com/sounds/Radio-1512.mp3.
      As a green mountain boy; I loved Bernie Sanders’ character comment, about two great Vermonters named Ben & Jerry.
Allow me to reflect on a year that was (with lifelines from the WS Journal, Dave Barry, and yes – Karl Rove).
1. Wall Street numbers ended flat.
We were waiting to follow the Fed and worried about China for a whole year ?!
2. Animal Rights organizations were incensed about a New Year’s Eve possum drop in Brasstown, North Carolina.
Really? Times Square can’t hold everyone . . .
3. Big oil and commodities will rebound (someday).
We’re told that housing already has rebounded more than King Lebron James.
Note to self:  watch “The Big Short.”
4. Karl Rove reminds us that great men of faith died in 2015.
He also asserted that far too many first responders perished in their lines of duty.
5. Dave Barry wrote: ‘a drone crashes on the White House lawn and becomes a leading contender for the Republican nomination’. . . and, ‘suddenly the clear leader in Iowa and New Hampshire for both parties, is QB Tom Brady. The scary part is that wouldn’t be so bad.’
6. Business leaders came and went, including the long-serving CISCO CEO, John Chambers.
I’m impressed that he succeeded, like other business leaders, with learning disabilities.
7. It was hard to overlook sports, from the awesome book/movie “CONCUSSION”, to the Spartans of Michigan State victories in several games with 0:00 left on the game clocks.
As my men of Troy fared poorly (USC) on the gridiron, I’m rooting for the men of Sparta on January 11th!
8. We San Diegans heard that our Chargers may sleep with the enemy (Raiders) in a new LA sports venue…
9. Mother Nature was cruel for our country’s heartland on the first days of Christmas, 2015.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who carry on after their tragic personal and property losses.
10. Yogi – you are so missed.
Your philosophic phrases are the right stuff of legend, as were your exploits behind the pinstripe plate.
“Damn Yankee”, says this Mets fan.
Back to our future:
What a year awaits us.
Here’s to our democratic process, however messy.
Here’s to El Nino: we are excited about the High Sierra snow pack, which is already 36 percent above normal (not that we westerners have seen “normal” in recent years). That said, how long can I tread water if this is an el “uber” nino.
Here’s to our men and women of extraordinary faith.
Here’s to our present and future business leaders, and their subordinates, who make our version of free markets what it is.
Here’s to our first responders and military men/women.
And here’s to you.
Be well, ​
DF

Father Alfred Smith

We lost a great man of faith and friendship on Christmas night – Father Al.

I join other saddened folks with the solace that he passed in his sleep, after a family gathering.

Father Al wasn’t a young man, though he was very much a young-at-heart as a life is good role model.

How often does a retired priest help a high-schooler gain an internship for a NFL team?  My answer is “at least once.”

Our son’s career start was enabled by this special man that dressed like mother, yet was called father in his career.

We miss you Father Al; yet the streets of heaven gained a saint on Christmas night.
