Realized bequests and transformational gifts – We got the gift! Now what? A story from the trenches – fulfilling the vision of Joan B. Kroc
Every non-profit’s dream is to become the beneficiary of large estate gifts. Sometimes these gifts are planned, and sometimes they are unexpected. In the case of the late philanthropist Joan B. Kroc, the Salvation Army received $1.5 billion from her estate to build 26 community centers around the nation.
We are pleased to present Lt. Colonel Cindy Foley who worked on the first Kroc Center in San Diego with Joan Kroc to carry out her vision. She will share the story of the gift, the challenges they encountered along the way, the impact of the gift and her advice and perspective gained from this experience.
Available at Harbor Court – Parking entrance is on Bethel Street; floors 5-7.
Choose the municipal parking ticket. No validation needed.
$0.75 per half hour for the FIRST two hours or fraction thereof
