Southern California Grantmakers is proud to co-sponsor Celebrating Philanthropic Leaders, honoring Joseph M. Lumarda and Debra Nakatomi, who were recently appointed trustees to The California Wellness Foundation's Board of Directors. 

We applaud The California Wellness Foundation - a longtime SCG member - and its efforts to build a philanthropic leadership reflective of the needs of California's diverse communities.

Lumarda and Nakatomi bring decades of knowledge and experience from their leadership roles in Asian American community organizations and within the broader philanthropic sector. AAPIP commends appointments like these because they inspire us to become more powerful voices and change agents within philanthropy and community.

Asian Americans / Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy, our evening host, is committed to supporting efforts to develop a strong pipeline of philanthropic leaders that deeply understands the needs and assets of diverse communities. AAPIP's Los Angeles Chapter has been leading such engagement efforts with foundation trustees to ensure that community voices are heard at all levels of leaderships.

This event is sponsored by Asian Americans / Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP), The California Wellness Foundation, Association of Black Foundation Executives, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy, Funders for LGBTQ Issues, Native Americans in Philanthropy, and Southern California Grantmakers.
