Lisa Parker is the granddaughter of Lawrence Welk and is widely known for counseling families on family and multi-generational philanthropy. She particularly advises family charitable foundations and is the President of the Lawrence Welk Family Foundation. As our recent South Placer Professional Roundtable speaker, Lisa covered a broad range of issues and benefits of family philanthropy with the backdrop of the history of the Lawrence Welk Foundation. Lawrence Welk originally founded it and it continues to be presided over by a Board of Directors made up from the family. The younger generations practice being the Board of Directors by being given 10% of the annual budget to decide how to give it charitably. Lisa pointed out that studies have shown that people who give and who are charitable are healthier, live longer, and are happier than the general population. We all want to leave a legacy for our posterity. Lawrence Welk is a great example of leaving a meaningful legacy for his family for generations to come. Pictured at October’s South Placer Professional Roundtable is Lisa Parker, the granddaughter of Lawrence Welk, and John Rogers Burk, Chair of the Roundtable. Roger has had the pleasure of conducting the Roundtable for 83 of the 84 quarterly sessions held in its 21-year history. This is a great resource for Professionals! The Roundtable is hosted quarterly by the Sutter Roseville Medical Center Foundation. It is held on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 A.M. on the second floor of the Sutter Roseville Medical Center. All financial professionals in the community are invited to gather at the complimentary continental breakfast to hear an expert speak on a subject of interest for estate planning professionals, financial planners, CPA’s and other’s with similar interests.
