SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 10 /CSRwire/ - Late in the summer of 2017, McKinney Capital & Advisory partnered with Mona Foundation to host the Aloha Sunday Fundraiser at the San Diego Surf Polo Club. This event was the “coming out” party for the San Diego Chapter of Mona Foundation and was focused on providing those in attendance an opportunity to become better acquainted with the Foundation. With three members of the McKinney team now as members of the new San Diego Chapter (Lori McKinney, CFO; Nour-Dean Anakar, Director, International Business Development; and Diana Baker, Culture & Operations Manager), there are already talks of partnering for more exciting fundraising events for 2018.
Nour-Dean Anakar, current board director of the San Diego Chapter of Mona Foundation, shares, “I decided to support Mona Foundation any way I can because children’s education in underdeveloped countries is an essential building block for positive change. Mona has clearly demonstrated that through the Foundation’s support, global impact on access to education for young girls, and gender equality is undeniable.”
Lori McKinney was nominated to be the Treasurer of the San Diego Chapter of Mona Foundation in 2017. The most recent member to join Mona Foundation from McKinney, Diana Baker, was attracted to the Foundation initially based on what they stand for: that the key to alleviating global poverty and achieving sustained community transformation lies in universal education and gender equality . Diana truly connected with the Foundation because of the selflessness of its board members and advocates, the professionalism of the operations, and their vision for the future. She had been looking to join a philanthropic organization that she felt truly reflected her own values but also had the operational foundation to succeed. Having worked in start-ups in the past, Diana built a keen sense for what needs to be present in an organization to be successful and she saw all those attributes within Mona Foundation. As a member of the San Diego Chapter, Diana is enthusiastic about the future of the children of our world because she can see the impact the foundation has already had and will continue to have in the years to come.
