Marshall Foundation for Community Health Appoints Executive Director

Mindy Danovaro has been appointed the Executive Director for Marshall Foundation for Community Health (MFCH). Mindy is a seasoned philanthropy executive with a proven track record of significant fundraising success and philanthropic process improvement. She holds a bachelor’s degree from UCLA and a master’s degree from New York Institute of Technology, and is a doctoral candidate in education, leadership, and innovation at the University of the Pacific.

Before joining Marshall, Mindy previously led philanthropic efforts at University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where she was responsible for the largest gift in the history of the law school of $25M. Prior to her tenure at McGeorge, Mindy worked as the Executive Director for the Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital Foundation where she raised more than $3.7 million in philanthropic support over two years.

MFCH’s Board of Trustees also announced its integration with Marshall Medical Center, an administrative change that allows Marshall more engagement with the Foundation’s operations. Benefits of the new structure include more administrative support, lowering the Foundation’s financial overhead, which allows donor dollars to go further.
