Marshall Welcomes Executive Director of Philanthropy

Philanthropy, by definition, is the love of humankind and takes many forms. It can mean giving of your time, your talent, or your treasure as a way to give back to your community. “It’s simply providing the love of humankind through whatever mechanism suits you best,” explains Mindy Danovaro, the newest member of the Marshall leadership team.

Marshall is pleased to welcome Mindy into a new role as Executive Director of Philanthropy. Mindy is a seasoned philanthropy executive with a proven track record of significant fundraising success and philanthropic process improvement.

Mindy holds a bachelor’s degree from UCLA and a master’s degree from New York Institute of Technology. She is currently a doctoral candidate in education, leadership, and innovation at the University of the Pacific.

She has previously led philanthropic efforts at University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where she was responsible for the largest gift in the history of the law school of $25M, which was the second largest gift to the university. Prior to her tenure at McGeorge, Mindy worked as the Executive Director for the Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital Foundation where she raised $3.7 million in gifts over two years.

Mindy is also no stranger to El Dorado County. From 1995 to 2004, she served as program director for the air medical transport program that serves the county, and as the Director of Development and Outreach for California Shock/Trauma Air Rescue.

She is beginning by taking the philanthropic pulse of Marshall by interviewing staff at all levels. “I am very excited to partner with the staff and leadership at Marshall Foundation for Community Health. A high tide raises all ships. By working together in a complementary fashion, we can raise funds for Marshall and for the community, while providing the best care we can for the patients of this county,” says Mindy.
