Voices for Children of Broward County is thrilled to announce the creation of The
Voices for Children of Broward County Endowment Fund, made possible by a
$100,000 gift from the Paul Palank Memorial Foundation.   According to Voices for
Children's Board Chair, Amy Goldin, "The donation allows us to establish this Fund to
ensure Voices will be able to continue to serve the needs of abused, neglected and
neglected children served by the Guardian Ad Litem program into the future. We are so
grateful for this tremendous gift."

The Paul Palank Memorial Foundation called upon others in the community to
contribute to the Endowment Fund. "The Palank Foundation is impressed with the
role that Voices has stepped in to fill, becoming the only ongoing funding source for the
very important Guardian Ad Litem program for Broward's dependent children," said
Angelica Palank, Founding Director of the Palank Foundation. "The Endowment Fund
will become one of many funding sources for the organization, which will continue to
rely on individual and corporate gifts.  We are hoping that more foundations, businesses
and individuals will contribute to this perpetual funding source to help with this
problem which, while it may never go away, this organization helps to improve.  This
type of gift truly 'keeps giving' to our community's children and thereby our shared

The Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (AFP) annual
awards program recognizes outstanding achievement by
individual, foundation and corporate philanthropists,
fundraising volunteers and fundraising professionals.

In philanthropy, such individuals and organizations form a vital
partnership with charities and the nonprofit sector to ensure
that the needs of all citizens are met. It is right and proper,
therefore, that AFP honors those who hold high ethical
standards and best exemplify commitment and dedication
toward helping society.
