DONOR APPRECIATION PLAQUE
The concept of “Donor Appreciation Plaque” and the abbreviated version of the “NCUBB business plan” are attached for your review.
For institutional donors, the JPF and the UCSF Children’s Hospital will proudly recognize your names but not limited to a custom-designed plaque based on the following categories. The plaque will be displayed on the wall within the facilities of the cord blood bank in perpetuity or as long as it is in operational at the UCSF Children’s Hospital.
Visionaries: $500K or higher
Founders: $250K or higher
Champions: $100K or higher
Benefactors: $50K or higher
Partners: $10K or higher
Individual contribution at the $50, $100, $200 or $500 or higher level will still play a key role in helping achieve this goal and will be recognized too. From my past experiences, it would be more difficult to solicit institutional supports. However, if many individuals could demonstrate their enthusiasm and love for this project, I believe the institutional donors would be moved and will follow suit in backing up this project.
We would need your help to distribute these attached files and communicate this NCUBB project to your friends and employers. Increasingly, the cord blood transplant has been playing a key role with its easier matching criteria and reduced graft-versus-host diseases (GVHD) effect in curing more than 70 blood/bone related diseases and genetic disorders.
We would like to thank wholeheartedly the recent contribution from the Blue Shield of California. We would like to acknowledge Supervisor Sean Elsbernd of San Francisco for facilitating this donation.
NEW JPF AND NCUBB WEBSITES
We hope you would appreciate the new looks with the cheering pictures of the angelic Joanne. In many ways, Joanne will always be remembered as a Leukemia Kid and she will constantly remind us the struggle of many patients, especially those heroic little children, battling deadly and terminal diseases for a chance at life. Her book “See Daddy! That’s the New Kite” in both English and Chinese will be available for patients who are currently fighting to overcome the adversaries.
Annual Public Joanne Pang Foundation Meeting scheduled for Saturday, November 15, 2008, 2:00-4:00pm; Meeting open to the public to scrutinize our accounting procedures and our accomplishments for the year.
Year-end fund-raising dinner scheduled for Saturday, November 22, 2008; more than 35 people had attended the volunteer night on June 12 at Leanna’s home in preparation of this event.

Wishing you all a Happy July 4th weekend!!
