About the Program: 

Enjoy an opportunity to engage with and hear from the 2022 National Philanthropy Day honorees. You saw them honored in November 2022. Now, hear more about their views on philanthropy and giving back to our community. Enjoy a thought-provoking discussion about what inspires each to say “yes” and receive suggestions each has for being more effective and successful as fundraisers.

Guests will gain valuable insights directly from these leading donors and community volunteers about what they think about being a leader in philanthropy really means. There will be time following the panel discussion for questions and answers with panel attendees.

  • Joyce & Terry Lillis - Outstanding Individual Philanthropists
  • Rona Berinobis, Athene - Outstanding Large Corporate/Foundation Philanthropy
  • Sheena Mahan, NCMIC - Outstanding Small Corporate/Foundation Philanthropy
