USF Sarasota-Manatee, Cumberland Advisors, and the Global Interdependence Center invite you to our third annual Financial Literacy Day, to be held April 11, 2019, from 8:30 AM to 4 PM in the Selby Auditorium of the USFSM campus.
The theme this year is “Financial Markets and the Economy,” and the event will feature a number of panel discussions and special presentations, including the Session II panel, “Health, Hunger, and Philanthropy” bringing together Judith Monroe, President and CEO, CDC Foundation, Erin McLeod, CEO, Friendship Centers, Sarasota, Lisa Marsh Ryerson, President, AARP Foundation, and Gabriel Hament of Cumberland Advisors. The moderator will be Lisa Shaw, CFP, CIMA, managing partner, Cygnus Asset Management, LLC.
Gabriel Hament is an Investment Advisor Representative who handles individual investment portfolios and charitable and foundation accounts for Cumberland Advisors. Gabriel works closely with the management teams and boards of directors of nonprofit institutions to design investment allocations in alignment with organizations’ mission and unique objectives.
Gabriel is a graduate of the Connect Florida Institute of Leadership Florida and was previously a political consultant in the Sarasota region, where he supervised and coordinated campaign messaging, fundraising, and field outreach programs. He is a member of the Programming Committee of the Sarasota Tiger Bay Club, which promotes community understanding of current political and social issues through public discourse and the free exchange of ideas. The Sarasota Tiger Bay Club is a nonpartisan political organization established in 1982.
In 2017 Gabriel was appointed by the Sarasota County School Board to serve as a member of the Financial Advisory Committee (FAC). The FAC was created to provide citizens’ oversight of the district’s use of operating funds from the 1-mill locally voted referendum that was originally approved in 2002 and most recently reauthorized in 2018. The FAC provides oversight for the use of capital funding generated by the district’s share of a one-percent county sales tax. The FAC also monitors the District’s investment accounts ($50 million core portfolio).
Feel free to ask questions of our panelists and connect with Gabriel during “Financial Markets and the Economy.” He welcomes the opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on good governance and best practices for nonprofits, small and large.
