Summary of past year’s program service accomplishments
For over 90 years, Kosair Charities has been the community leader in children’s healthcare needs and shows no signs of slowing down. On the contrary, Kosair Charities Board of Directors has taken steps to expand its involvement in the community by creating and implementing a Kosair Charities Advisory Board.

AIF® Certification through the Center for Fiduciary Studies
At Kosair Charities, we are very proud of our legacy of helping kids. Not only because we have cared for so many children, but we also exercise thoughtful stewardship of every gift received. To achieve that end, volunteer board members and staff have the opportunity to obtain Accredited Investment Fiduciaries (AIF©) Certification. Currently, three Kosair Charities Board members and two senior staff members are certified. Kosair Charities has more certified AIF® directors than any other non-profit in the region.
The certification requires ongoing education encompassing a unique, comprehensive overview of fiduciary standards of excellence, asset allocation, investment policy statement preparation, manager search and due diligence, performance measurement and other related subjects. Those that are certified are trained to adhere to specific spending and giving policies. This ensures that the treasures provided to help our Kosair Kids are managed correctly, and that we can continue providing the same care for generations to come.
