BWL’s Susan Devon Named 2014 Outstanding Individual Philanthropist of the Year

Susan Devon, Lansing Board of Water & Light chief administrative officer, was named the 2014 Outstanding Individual Philanthropist of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in association with the Capital Region Community Foundation. Devon has been responsible for raising funds in support of several local nonprofit organizations including Child and Family Charities, where she currently serves as board president. She was cited for her work in promoting and actively supporting several regional and national charitable causes.

“Susan’s award reflects her tireless work on behalf of our charitable community and BWL’s culture of giving back to our community,” said General Manager J. Peter Lark. “We are delighted she has been recognized by this outstanding achievement.”

Devon believes that generous philanthropic giving is vital to finding cures for diseases such as juvenile diabetes, ending child abuse and neglect and helping vulnerable populations. “I’m humbled and honored to be recognized by the Capital Region Community Foundation. More importantly, it highlights the tremendous need that continues to be addressed to help those families in need.”

Devon has been promoting and actively supporting several regional and national charitable causes. She and her husband, John, recently celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary. They have two sons, Christopher and Patrick, both graduates of MSU.
