Museum Issues Forum Presents Philanthropy Expert

For Release: July 11, 2005
College Station, TX - What role can and should philanthropy play in passing down to future generations not just money, but values and a family culture? Many families go through the estate planning process without ever addressing important questions like what is really important to your family, and how can you best support your children and grandchildren in seeking out their role in life. On July 19th, 2005 at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, Stephen D. Maislin will be addressing these issues as part of the Bush Museum Issues Forums. He will focus on practical ideas for beginning this discussion within a family, and on how the activity of charitable giving – whether large or small - can play a vital role in this effort.

STEPHEN D. MAILSIN is President and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Houston Community Foundation, working with families to achieve their charitable goals. Maislin has also had positions with the Houston offices of KPMG and Fidelity Investments and local firms Comiskey Kaufman, Inc., and The Maislin Company. At KPMG he was Director, Personal Financial Planning Practice and presented seminars and workshops for the Association for Advanced Life Underwriting and the State Bar of Texas.

Maislin is a graduate of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (B.S. in Economics) and the University of Texas School of Law. He grew up in Houston and graduated from St. John’s School.

Steve has been an active participant in the Houston community, including service on the boards of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Houston, the American Diabetes Association, and the Houston Jewish Community Foundation. Steve and his wife, Michelle, have also been members of the Children’s Fund. They have four children.

The Bush Museum Issues Forum strives to present leading experts in their respective fields. The forum also provides a vehicle in which the local community can be engaged in discussion concerning topics and issues that face our nation. In the past, the Museum Issues Forum has addressed a wide variety of topics including terrorism, LBJ, Central Europe, and the role of intelligence in national security.

The Issues Forum begins at 7:00 p.m. at the Bush Museum. There is no cost to attend, but reservations are recommended. For more information, or to make reservations, call Amanda Urrutia at 979-691-4015.
