Get to Know Liz Cheney


My first memory of giving comes from my childhood. My parents would give me a quarter for the offering plate at our small church. And if I was really good, I could have another one to toss in. I remember hearing the 'tink' as my quarters hit the side of the plate before passing it along. I felt proud, and I knew I was doing something good. Fast forward to today. I didn't necessarily plan to work in planned giving. But as it turns out, all roads have led me here. I am a wife, mother, donor, community volunteer and general do-gooder. Alongside expert attorneys and financial planners, I've helped 'ordinary' people plan extraordinary gifts that will transform their communities. Read my complete bio here.
