Kim O'Donnell
CHICAGO, IL (June 21, 2016) — Palatine, Ill.-based Proper Title, LLC, a full-service title insurance agency, announced Kim O’Donnell, senior commercial account executive, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the Chicago chapter of Random Acts of Flowers (RAF). 

O’Donnell’s appointment furthers Proper Title’s commitment to positively impacting the Chicago area through charitable giving.

“Random Acts of Flowers Chicago is a phenomenal organization that has deeply impacted the communities in which Proper Title serves. I am excited to take an active role in continuing its mission of delivering the beauty of flowers and moments of kindness and compassion to people who need it most,” said O’Donnell.

 “Random Acts of Flower’s commitment to improving the daily lives of those in need is a perfect extension of Proper Title’s mission to share our personal and professional success to benefit others.”

 RAF Chicago is a non-profit organization that recycles and repurposes flowers, with 500 volunteers who create and deliver beautiful bouquets to 130 healthcare facilities across Chicagoland, including hospitals, nursing homes, hospice and rehab centers and veteran’s medical facilities.

 Flowers are donated by grocery stores, floral retail and wholesalers, weddings, funerals, galas and RAF’s national partner FTD-Pro Flowers. Since its inception in 2015, RAF Chicago has delivered 35,000 bouquets and recycled 32,000 vases.

“We are so delighted to welcome Kim to our board, as she brings impeccable leadership skills, community relationships and a genuine passion for giving to others,” said Joanie Bayhack, executive director of RAF Chicago. “Kim is a very engaging advocate for our rapidly growing organization, and her energy and strategic perspective will be an invaluable asset to our board.” 

To enhance its culture of compassion, Proper Title established its charitable arm, Proper Giving, in July 2015.

Proper Giving contributes funds for every residential, commercial and refinancing transaction to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. To date, Proper Giving has donated more than $20,000 and over 30 hours of volunteer time to Lurie’s. 

“When you consider Proper Title has increased its transaction volume by 400 percent and revenues by 420 percent since its founding in 2013, our positive impact has grown exponentially,” said O’Donnell. “And the more we grow both as a firm and individually, the greater impact we can have through wonderful organizations like Random Acts of Flowers.”

O’Donnell has been a leader in the title insurance industry for the past 20 years, and joined Proper Title in 2015. She is active in many industry-specific groups and serves on the board of the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago. O’Donnell regularly participates in the 40- and 60-mile walks in support of the Susan G. Komen and Avon Breast Cancer Foundations, as well as volunteer work with her family at Feed My Starving Children.
