In Memory of Michele Hall Duncan

In Memory of Michele Hall Duncan

We lost a member of our AFP family last week, Michele Hall-Duncan, who served on our board as our
Secretary. We will be taking a moment of silence during the Penny Stoil Luncheon at Fundraising Day to remember Michele and her leadership in the
fundraising profession and the work she did and led at enCourage Kids Foundation. The board of AFP-NYC will be making a gift to enCourage Kids to honor Michele, please consider donating to this wonderful organization in her memory at We also would like to share the message from enCourage Kids with our readers:
"It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you that Michele Hall-Duncan, our President & CEO, has passed away after a four-year battle with breast cancer. She passed peacefully in her sleep, in the company of loved ones and received world-class care from the day of diagnosis until the end of life.

Michele was the heart and soul of enCourage Kids for 26 years. Words cannot express the full scope of her impact on the organization, the children and families we serve, our hospital partners, and all of the lives she touched.
We will have more information to share in the coming days, and ask that you direct any inquiries to We will respond as we are able to.

Thank you for your understanding and support.


The Board of Directors and Staff of enCourage Kids Foundation"
