Rancho Santa Fe Foundation to hold March 27 event


The Rancho Santa Fe Foundation recently announced the creation of BetterTogether, a new initiative that will strive to bring local family/private foundations together to actively provide opportunities for mutual support and encouragement, education and the possibility to share resources in the field of philanthropy.

During these challenging financial times, it is more important than ever to leverage philanthropic dollars and join together in efforts to improve this community.

If you and your family have a family/private foundation, and to get the conversation started, BetterTogether invites you to a facilitated discussion with Marguerite Griffin and Valerie Jacobs on the subject of private and family foundations, and family succession.

Marguerite Griffin is the National Director of Philanthropic Services for Northern Trust. She brings extensive experience in working with high net worth families and their philanthropic vision.

Valerie Jacobs is the Founder of Valerie Jacobs Consulting and is the Chairman of the Board of the Jacobs Family Foundation, located here in San Diego.

Be part of the conversation and attend this event on Tuesday, March 27, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe (Croquet Cottage). Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Please RSVP by March 23 to Debbie Anderson at or (858)756-0358.

The evening is being co-sponsored by the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation and Northern Trust.
