LEAWOOD, Kan. – The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has named Craig Doane vice president of development and executive director of the AAFP Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the organization.
In his new position, Doane oversees all corporate development fundraising and foundation activities, which annually raise more than $11 million in grants and donations. In this capacity, he leads a team of corporate fundraisers, develops and implements funding strategies for the organization, manages the organization's grant writing and administration process, and provides administrative and management oversight of development staff. As vice president, Doane also is involved in organization-wide strategy and policy development activities. Doane serves as a nonvoting member and secretary of the AAFP Foundation Board of Trustees and actively participates in the activities of the AAFP Board of Directors. He is based in the AAFP's headquarters office in Leawood, Kan., and replaces Sandra Panther, who retired this year after 35 years of service to the AAFP.
"I’m confident that in addition to his extensive experience, Craig will bring strong leadership and new direction to our Foundation and the Academy in a rapidly evolving development environment," AAFP Executive Vice President, Douglas E. Henley, M.D., said of Doane's hire.
"I am very excited to welcome Craig to the Foundation," said Jerry P. Rogers, M.D., president of the Foundation and a family physician in Moorhead, Minn. "His knowledge, experience and enthusiasm will be critical to making the Foundation more active and engaged as we pursue our mission to improve the health of all."
Doane brings 21 years of professional experience in business and financial development to the AAFP. Prior to joining the AAFP, he served 12 years as chief development officer for The National Kidney Foundation, the leading international organization focusing on treatment, advocacy and education regarding kidney disease, hypertension, transplantation and organ and tissue donation. Doane's development efforts on behalf of the organization led to a nearly 50 percent increase in revenues for the Foundation.
Doane also served for five years as vice president for development of The National Children's Cancer Society, an international health organization that provides financial, emotional and educational support to children suffering from cancer. Most recently, he was chief executive officer for the Belle Center of St. Louis, a regional nonprofit organization dedicated to providing therapy and support services to children with disabilities.
Doane is a member of the Association of Fund Raising Professionals, the professional association for individuals responsible for generating philanthropic support for a wide variety of nonprofit, charitable organizations.
Doane received a master's degree in educational administration from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a bachelor's degree in business administration from MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, Kan.
