Philanthropy Matters – Reid Samuel

Reid Samuel is the annual fund manager for the Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity, which was founded in 1925 and has its headquarters in Kansas City. His responsibilities include managing direct response, online giving, and sustaining giving programs. In addition, he had a key role in the organization’s first-ever capital campaign, which drew $4.25 million in pledges. When Reid moved to Our Town in 2010, he was pleasantly surprised. “I’ve really come to appreciate the spirit of generosity,” he said. “I’m fortunate to work and volunteer alongside so many great people.”
