Just Announced! 2015 AHP Si Seymour Award Winner

Every year since 1970, AHP presents its prestigious Harold J. (Si) Seymour Award to development professionals whose careers reflect excellence and outstanding leadership in health care philanthropy. This year's recipient is Mary Anne Chern, FAHP, ACFRE.

Ms. Chern has served as president of the White Memorial Medical Center Charitable Foundation in Los Angeles—which is part of Adventist Health—for the past 18 years. She has more than 30 years of experience as a hospital fund development professional and is one of only four individuals in the United States with both the FAHP (Fellow Status) from the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy and the ACFRE (Advanced Certification) from the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

She is a past board chair of the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) and before that served AHP in numerous volunteer capacities. She also has served on many boards impacting philanthropy in the United States—including the CFRE International Board of Directors; the Milton Murray Foundation for Philanthropy Board of Directors; the Southern California Association for Healthcare Development; and both the Greater Los Angeles Chapter Board of Directors of AFP and the national Board of Directors of AFP.

Ms. Chern also has many publications and a book on philanthropy. In spring 2009, she was an AHP Journal Award winner for the article, "Hispanic Fundraising: Myths and Realities." She received the Philanthropic Services for Institutions Trailblazer "Lifetime Achievement Award" in 2006 and the Southern California Association for Healthcare Development "Lifetime Achievement Award" in 2009.

The AHP Si Seymour Award is presented each year at the AHP International Conference. Join us in honoring Ms. Chern at the conference award luncheon on Friday, October 2, at 12:00pm.
