ACGA Welcomes Two New Board Members

The ACGA Board elected Donna Bandalloni and Cris Lutz to serve on the Board in its recent April Board meeting.

BandelloniDonna is Director of Gift Planning for the California Pacific Medical Center Foundation in Northern California.  She brings over 26 years of experience in the for-profit (Wells Fargo, Merrill Lynch, and Mellon Trust) and nonprofit sectors with an emphasis on charitable gift planning in both sectors. 

Donna holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Connecticut and is a personal friend of Geno Auriemma of UCONN women's basketball fame (move over ACGA board member Cam Kelly of Duke... we now have ties to two national basketball championship schools on the ACGA Board fighting for bragging rights!)


LutzCris Lutz currently serves as Planned Giving Director for The Huntington Library, Arts Collections, and Botanical Gardens in Southern California having earlier spent seven years as a Major Gifts Officer for Huntington. She is a veteran in the nonprofit arena with over 15 years of experience in the sector.

Holding undergraduate degrees in the Arts and Social Sciences and an advanced degree in Psychology, prior to her tenure at Huntington, Cris served as Case and Program Manager for Big Brothers/Big Sisters in Los Angeles before moving into the fund development side of the Big Brother/Big Sister program.

Cris's service on the ACGA Board will be a representative voice for an important element of the charitable sector, and she invites everyone to stop in for a unique arts, library, and botanical gardens experience when in the Los Angeles area.
