The Non­Prof­it Times select­ed three alum­ni of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Chil­dren and Fam­i­ly Fel­low­ship for its 2019 Pow­er & Influ­ence Top 50, which hon­ors ini­tia­tors and lead­ers.” The three — Dou­glas B. Ammar, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Geor­gia Jus­tice Project; Fred Black­well, chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of the San Fran­cis­co Foun­da­tion; and Daniel Car­di­nali, pres­i­dent and CEO of Inde­pen­dent Sec­tor — have achieved last­ing improve­ments in child, fam­i­ly and com­mu­ni­ty well-being.

Ammar, Black­well and Car­di­nali joined the Fel­low­ship — the Casey Foundation’s sig­na­ture pro­gram to devel­op strong, results-dri­ven lead­ers with the vision, skills and abil­i­ty to cham­pi­on and dri­ve mea­sur­able change — in 2007. They are now part of a nation­al net­work of 125 high­ly accom­plished alum­ni Fellows.

The pro­gram attracts indi­vid­u­als who lead with pas­sion, inspire oth­ers to action and per­se­vere, often against great odds,” says Bar­bara Squires, the direc­tor of Lead­er­ship Devel­op­ment at the Foun­da­tion who worked with the three rec­og­nized lead­ers dur­ing the Fellowship.

Black­well and Car­di­nali lead two of the orga­ni­za­tions select­ed by Casey ear­li­er this year to work with the Foun­da­tion for three years to expand a results ori­en­ta­tion through­out the social sec­tor. The San Fran­cis­co Foun­da­tion and Inde­pen­dent Sec­tor, respec­tive­ly, are on the path to becom­ing hubs for Results Count™, Casey’s approach to accel­er­ate mea­sur­able and equi­table improve­ments in well-being for chil­dren and fam­i­lies in com­mu­ni­ties across the country.

Includ­ed among the 2019 NPT hon­orees is Casey Foun­da­tion Pres­i­dent and CEO Lisa Hamil­ton.
