Donor Profile: Ken Malecke, Member of the Investor's Guild Monthly Pledge Program

Ken Malecke

AnewAmerica’s work is an essential element in creating a healthy society.  My initial interest in AnewAmerica was sparked from the passion of Sylvia Rosales-Fike (AnewAmerica’s President and CEO).  I have been working in the non-profit sector for much of my adult career, and seldom do I meet someone who speaks with such belief, commitment, and dedication to an organization. Also, AnewAmerica provides individuals with the skills necessary to uplift their place in society and feel ownership within their community, which is important to me as a donor.

It is imperative that we all give back on some level, even during these challenging economic times.  Without the work of organizations like AnewAmerica, the ramifications of the current economic downturn would be even more devastating for our vulnerable populations.

For me, choosing to give to an organization is a very personal decision.  Within myself, I establish what is important for me to support and where my support is most needed.

The Investor's Guild, AnewAmerica's monthly pledge program, enables me to make a smaller contribution each month throughout the year, while making a long-term investment in the work of AnewAmerica.  The program creates parameters of commitment in my life. It is important to me to make a commitment to AnewAmerica and to live out that promise of support.  In addition, the recurring donor program is easy.  The payments happen automatically.  I am reminded on a monthly basis that I am a long-term supporter of an organization doing essential work in our communities.

No matter how big or small your gift is, it is important to give.
