November Luncheon: Donor Panel with moderator JoAnn Turnquist

  • 09 Nov 2017
  • 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
  • 11:30 - 1:00 PM 300 Senate at Senate’s End, 300 Senate Street, Columbia, SC, 29201



JoAnn Turnquist, President & CEO of Central Carolina Community Foundation, will moderate a panel of area philanthropists. Through questions and conversation, JoAnn will uncover why donors do what they do and why they support what they support. We’ll also find out their stories, and what impacts their philanthropic decisions. As fundraisers, we’ll also learn what their expectations are before, during, and after their gifts are made. At the end of the discussion, we will permit enough time for audience questions. Join us for this spirited conversation about philanthropy.

Panelists include:

Lou Kennedy, President and CEO of Nephron Phamaceutical, serves on many boards, including Central Carolina Community Foundation and the University of South Carolina.

Drew Stevens, Financial Advisor at Northwestern Mutual and former President of United Way's Young Leaders Society.
