He earned his pilot’s wing from the United State Air Force and spent 30 years in the California Air National Guard logging over 7 thousand flying hours.
A nationally renowned teacher and fundraiser, Michael C. Ford has spent his entire working life in those two career related fields. He began as a seventh and eighth grade Language Arts, High School Latin, and 12th grade English teacher before moving into higher education. Ford served as Associate Dean for Humanities and Chair of the English department. As a tenured professor of English, he taught undergraduate and graduate courses in composition, linguistics and literature at some of the nation’s premier universities.
Being a fundraiser means more than just fundraising. Fundraisers are the connection between donors and causes, the catalysts that make philanthropy happen. No two fundraisers are alike just like no two causes or campaigns are alike. Fundraising is about what you want it to be- what you want to focus on and what impact you want to have on the world. It is only limited by your imagination.
