This month’s discussion was headed by former trust banker, community advocate, and author, Peter Heegaard. For this roundtable, he discussed the findings of his new book: More Bang for Your Buck Good News for Taxpayers, Public Officials, Philanthropists & Non-profit Managers.
In this book, and for this meeting, he highlighted the many ways in which non-profit organizations and public initiatives are making real differences, and most importantly, how and why these entities should find ways to increase awareness of the important impacts they have on both the community and economy.
Look for Mr. Heegaard’s widely anticipated book on shelves in the coming weeks.
A Minneapolis native, Peter Heegaard began his business career in Minneapolis in 1960 with the Trust Investment Group of Northwestern National Bank of Minneapolis, which he headed from 1980 to 1986. He was the founder and former Managing Principal of Lowry Hill which is a subsidiary of Wells Fargo and the leading Twin Cities based asset management company exclusively dedicated to serving affluent individuals and their families. He retired in 1996 to serve as consultant and community volunteer to several foundations and non-profit organizations engaged in strengthening community in Minnesota.
