Advancement official wins national award

Ron Jordan, assistant vice president for University Advancement and executive director of University Development at New Mexico State University, has won the 2000 National Society of Fund Raising Executives (NSFRE) Staley/Robeson/Ryan/St. Lawrence Prize for research on fund raising and philanthropy.

Jordan received the prize for his book "Planned Giving: Management, Marketing and Law," which he co-wrote with Katelyn Quynn, director of planned giving and major gifts at Massachusetts General Hospital in Wellesley, Mass.

Jordan and Quynn accepted the award recently during the NSFRE International Conference on Fund Raising in New Orleans. They presented their book at a session followed by a book signing in the NSFRE Bookstore.

The book describes the management and legal issues involved with planned giving. It discusses marketing, taxation, estate and financial planning, the growing role of donor advisers, the role of planned giving within an organization and various types of planned gifts.

The book was written for fund-raising professionals and lawyers, accountants and financial planners who work with charitable gifts.

"Planned Giving" is available through John Wiley and Sons by calling (800) 225-5945 or on the Web at http://www.wiley.com. For more information, contact Ron Jordan at (505) 646-1106.
