Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal attorney Susan E. Block, has been recognized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in St. Louis as an honoree for this year’s Changemaker Award. When Judge Block served as administrative judge of the Family Court of St. Louis County, she saw unmet needs of the children before her. Sharing her experiences with the county bar, she inspired them to create “Caring for Kids,” a non-profit that provides for the urgent needs of children involved with the Juvenile Court.
For the past 16 years, she has served on its board, leading fundraising efforts that have engaged the community in assuring children have beds to sleep in, tutoring, car seats, and school uniforms. Block has brought new leadership to the board from prominent corporations and community activists. Partnering with other helping agencies, Caring for Kids gets its clients the things they need with great speed and efficiency.
A member of the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund, Block has a passion for children which she brings to her legal practice, championing for them to have productive, healthy lives in a safe community.
The honorees will receive their awards at the virtual National Philanthropy Day celebration on November 19, 2020
