Former UNMF Trustee Doug Brown Retires as Dean of UNM’s Anderson School of Management

Doug Brown, whose term on the UNMF Board of Trustees ended June 30, retired as dean of UNM’s Anderson School of Managment, also at the end of June, after five years in that position. A longtime business and community leader and philanthropist, Dean Brown leaves a legacy at UNM and beyond. Read Carolyn Gonzales’ tribute here. We thank Dean Brown for his service to UNM and the UNM Foundation and wish him all the best in his retirement! Back to top

Other UNM Foundation Staff Changes

Sarah Calcutt has left the UNM Foundation to pursue further education. We wish her well.

Ted Wynn, a director of development for the UNM School of Medicine since last August, is no longer with UNM Foundation. Ted’s wife was accepted into a PhD program in Virginia, and they felt this was a great move for their family. Additionally, Ted accepted a job with George Mason University to lead a development effort there. We wish Ted and his wife all the best!

UNM Pocket Archivist App Debuts

The UNM Archives recently released the UNM Pocket Archivist as an app, now available in the Apple iTunes store. Developed by longtime UNM Archivist Terry Gugliotta, the new app is a tour of historic UNM buildings, public art, and the campus arboretum.

In an email to the UNMF, Terry wrote, “Your development staff can now give donors tours of the campus and sound like experts about the history, art and plants!”

The project was done in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of UNM in 2014. It is only available for Apple devices at this time, but Terry said she expects an Android version to be released by the end of the upcoming fall semester. More buildings will be added to the tour this fall.

To learn more and download the app, please visit here.

In honor of the upcoming Independence Day holiday on July 4th, UNMF Human Resources has encouraged staff to dress in our nation’s colors this Thursday, July 3–tomorrow! Henry has designated Thursday as “casual Thursday,” so you may wear jeans or “appropriate for work” length shorts.

How to Request a New Online Gift Page–or Change an Existing One

The UNM Foundation’s online gift pages are an easy way for your department, college, school or program to promote its gift-giving opportunities. It’s also a convenient and easily accessible way for donors to support your unit throughout the year.

To request a new online gift page, complete the Online Giving Fund Request Form. When you submit the completed form, it is sent to the UNMF Marketing and Communication Department. Once received, the fund is created and sent to you for review. This is your opportunity to review the fund and make corrections or adjustments before it’s finalized. Once you have reviewed the fund and approved it, the page is posted to the UNMF website and the final link is sent to you to promote to your donors.

To update an existing online gift page, please complete the Online Giving Fund Request Form, but checkmark the “Existing online fund edit” box and type the changes you want in the “Description of Fund” text box. The same review process is used as described above.

Be sure to occasionally review your unit’s funds that are listed on the UNMF website. A fund without a description is less likely to be used by donors—so if you see a fund for your unit without a description, be sure to submit a description through the request form. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Kemp at Jennifer.Kemp@unmfund.org or 277-0600.

July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month!

(Content courtesy of the Juvenile Arthritis Foundation website.)
When you hear about arthritis, do you think about children? If you’re like many people in the United States, you probably are unaware that arthritis affects more children than juvenile diabetes and cystic fibrosis combined. In fact, nearly 300,000 children nationwide have been diagnosed.

Juvenile arthritis is one of the most common chronic illnesses affecting children, yet it is often undetected or misdiagnosed when symptoms first appear. During July—Juvenile Arthritis (JA) Awareness Month—the Arthritis Foundation is focusing on increasing awareness of early signs and symptoms of juvenile arthritis and resources for families affected by the disease.

Joint pain, stiffness and swelling around a joint may be early signs of a serious inflammatory rheumatic disease. Early medical treatment of JA can prevent serious, permanent damage to a child’s joints. There is no known cure; however, advances in research have produced new treatments that moderate and even stop the effects of juvenile arthritis, preventing significant disability in later years.

Learn more about Juvenile Arthritis here.
