MONICA LINDSTROM APPOINTED TO ARIZONA FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN BOARD


 

Congratulations to Monica Lindstrom, Past President and Board Member of the Scottsdale Bar Association, on her appointment to the Arizona Foundation for Women Board of Directors. 

The Foundation was founded in 1995 by community trailblazer and philanthropist Marilyn R. Seymann and a group of local leaders.  It was founded in response to the low rate of philanthropic giving to women’s issues — just 4 percent of giving at the time was directed to women’s causes. The Foundation joined other women’s funds and foundations from across the nation and world to create a “women’s funding movement.” As part of that movement, the Foundation has contributed more than $2 million to the community since its inception.

CHRISTINE JENSEN APPOINTED TO ARIZONA HUMANE SOCIETY BOARD


Congratulations to Scottsdale Bar member Christine Jensen on her appointment to the Arizona Human Society Board of Directors.


Since 1957, the Arizona Humane Society (AHS) has fostered the belief that every pet deserves a good life. With a vision to end animal suffering, we rescue, heal, adopt and advocate for sick, injured and abused animals.

What once began as a small shelter established by a compassionate group of volunteers has since grown to become the state’s largest animal welfare and protection agency, as well as the state’s designated responder for animals in distress during natural disasters.
