On Friday, November 13, 2020 join us on this page for a live-streamed National Philanthropy Day celebration!


Create Birmingham would not exist without the philosophical investment of Birmingham’s corporate and private philanthropic community. By philosophical, I mean belief in, and enthusiastic support for, our purpose and work. That belief is demonstrated financially, yes, but in many other ways equally as important. As a rule, over the course of any given year, I have the privilege of visiting our supporters to share in-person updates about our progress and to receive valuable advice. COVID has changed that in 2020, and I miss the connection to people who are such important members of our Create Birmingham family.


So it makes me very happy to have a platform to share my excitement about the well-deserved recognition from the Alabama Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals for two “family” members, Stewart Welch and Kate Nielsen. Kate was the person most responsible for our creation, served as our first chairperson, has played a leading role in our growth since 2004, and continues to advocate for our work and the entire creative sector. Our rapidly growing CO.STARTERS program and the many other support services we’re able to provide entrepreneurs would simply not exist without Stewart’s partnership and shared vision. It is truly impossible to describe all that they’ve done for us.


Stewart and Kate, along with her husband Claude, will be honored via a live-streamed National Philanthropy Day event on Friday, November 13th. Although we can’t be with them in person, we want them to know how deeply we value the time commitment, wise counsel, and enduring encouragement that they’ve generously given to us over many years. Congratulations, Kate and Stewart, and thank you for everything you’ve done for Create Birmingham and so many organizations in our community!
