The future of nonprofits


July 09, 2000|By Sloane Brown

The Chesapeake Planned Giving Council's "Wine Tasting and Recognition Event" offered its 75 guests more than just a view of Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

As they mingled in the Hyatt Regency's top-floor Pisces Restaurant, the group also looked at the future of Maryland nonprofit organizations.

The occasion -- the 10th anniversary of the Leave A Legacy Program, which encourages people to make gifts from their estates to the nonprofits of their choice.

Among those attending: Sharon Dorn, president of Chesapeake Planned Giving Council; Chris McGurn, Donna Mayer, Michael Friedman, Lynn Wintress, John Sieverts, council board members; Bob Harrison, Leave A Legacy Maryland chair; Bo Dixon, McDonogh School headmaster; Susan Daniel, Boordy Vineyards marketing director; Rhea Feikin, MPT-TV personality; Pat Blanchard, planned giving director for American Red Cross, Central Maryland chapter; Rebecca Rotley, development associate, the Children's Guild; Pamela Purcell, gift planning specialist, University System of Maryland; Phil Melberg, National Rifle Association Foundation planned giving director; Ellen Spicer, St. Paul's School annual giving director; and Frank Collins, principal with the Collins Group.
