A Role Model for Philanthropy

In honor of National Philanthropy Day, Beth Marcus, senior vice president for development, reflects on the many contributions of a special member of the LISC community and how her leadership is a model of great philanthropy. Through her years of work as an employee and board member, her stewardship of the Cashin Fellowship and her role as generous LISC donor, Lisa Cashin continues to be an inspiration to community development leaders, past, present and future.
