About the event
Help us celebrate Ethics Awareness Month—because ethics makes philanthropy and fundraising possible. Without ethics, giving doesn’t happen. Fundraising doesn’t happen. Change and impact don’t happen.
Learn from the experts in this panel style discussion: Shelly Prichard, Wichita Community Foundation President and CEO and our 2021 NPD President’s Award Recipient; Don Barry, Donor and Fundraising Volunteer and our 2004 Outstanding Philanthropist along with wife, Lora; and Darin Kater, WSU Foundation Vice President and our 2022 Outstanding Fundraising Professional.
Shelly Prichard is the President & CEO of the Wichita Community Foundation, a position she has had since 2012. At the Foundation, which manages more than $106 million in assets, Shelly interacts with donors to help them direct their charitable giving. She also works with prospective fund holders, and non-profits, and works to connect funders with organizations doing good work in Wichita. Prior to the community foundation, Shelly was the CEO of the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, serving 80 counties in Kansas, and managing the business merger of seven Girl Scout councils.
Shelly grew up on a farm outside of Newton, Kansas, and earned a degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from K-State. She spent several years moving throughout the mid-west, working for a variety of companies, all with ties to marketing and communications. Some stops included The Indianapolis Zoo, the Illinois Board of Regents, and Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina. Shelly returned home in 1994 to work in public affairs at Koch Industries. Her job at Koch led to a position as the Executive Director of Youth Entrepreneurs of Kansas.
Originally from Wichita, Kansas, Don lived many places as a child with a father in the military police, including Washington, D.C. and Hawaii. In 1970, Don moved back to Wichita for high school, graduating from Wichita North High School in 1972. After high school, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps for two years. He then worked a variety of jobs
while attending Wichita State University, eventually getting his degree there.
Don began working in wealth management in 1981 as a financial advisor at A.G. Edwards. Through his experiences, Don learned that the industry itself is an education. He not only understands the technical aspect of wealth management, but also the human aspects. His favorite part about working in wealth management is the satisfaction of being able to help people do well in life. He enjoys helping people have financial peace of mind.
Darin Kater has been with the Wichita State University Foundation since 2008. Before becoming Vice President of Development, Darin served as Director of Development for Planned Giving, Senior Director of Development for Planned Giving and Annual Fund, and Associate Vice President for Development. In his current role, Darin oversees the Foundation’s major gift development team. This group of fundraising professionals connects generous donors to the needs of the university.
Prior to the WSU Foundation, Darin worked in higher education for seventeen years. During this time, he held several roles spanning the areas of admissions, student services, academic programming and teaching, alumni relations, planned giving, and university advancement.
Darin earned his Bachelor of Science in Business/Art and Master of Science in Management from Friends University and completed his coursework for certification as an Emergency Medical Technician from Wichita State University. His volunteer interests have included coaching youth sports and serving in various teaching and administrative roles in his church. Currently Darin is serving as the President Elect for East Wichita Rotary.
Darin has held memberships with the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning, Wichita Estate Planning Council, Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, Rotary Club of East Wichita, and AFP Greater Wichita Chapter.
