Jim Anderson Named AFP Northern Arizona Fundraising Professional of the Year

2010 Fundraising Professional
of the Year
Anderson was nominated by Vernon Kahe, Alice Ferris, and Sararesa Begay-Hopkins for his contributions to the philanthropic community since 2005.

Anderson’s work with the Hopi Education Endowment Fund (HEEF) and KGHR Navajo Public Radio, among many others, gave him experience and motivation to be a philanthropist, while his personality and creativity gave him the characteristics it takes to be a one-of-a-kind leader.

“Often, one is surprised to see this uptight-looking guy in a suit and tie break out in a TV theme song, or even better, 'I’m a little teapot' or running around a crowded room sprinkling water, acting like rain,” said Kahe, resource development manager for the HEEF. “Although easygoing, Jim gets his point across, while the suit and tie lend credibility.”

Will work for frybread.
Ferris, Anderson’s business partner at GoalBusters Consulting, LLC since 2006, has a vast appreciation for Anderson’s personal commitment to philanthropy. During the Schultz Flood, he dropped everything he was doing to help an affected family shovel mud for fours days, and was rewarded for his hard work with frybread.

“I know Jim wants people to believe that he’s a tough salesman, but he has the heart of a philanthropist,” Ferris said. “I believe that this combination makes him an excellent fundraiser and worthy of this year’s award.”
