Rancho Santa Fe resident John Seiber was recognized as Outstanding Fundraising Volunteer at the 44th Annual National Philanthropy Day in mid-November. John was co-nominated by three institutions: Kraemer Endowment Foundation, Mingei International Museum, and St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center. “John Seiber defines the word ‘leader,’” said Maureen King, Vice Chair of Kraemer Endowment Foundation. “He is a model board chairman who has the respect and affection of all those with whom he works.”

John is also involved with the Dickinson Foundation, San Diego River Valley Conservancy, San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy, Volunteers In Medicine San Diego, and the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. “He has been quietly involved in so much that is good and impactful in San Diego and deserves to be recognized,” said Rancho Santa Fe Foundation Executive Director Christy Wilson. Jessica Hanson York, Director of External Relations for Mingei International Museum, agreed, “The amount of time and energy he contributes is nothing short of incredible.”
