Tuesdays with T4A: Susan Termohlen (10/29/13)

Susan Termohlen and her husband Scott Kaspick were the very first contributors to T4A.org, which allowed us to operate in our earliest days. Without them, we would probably not exist! Susan and Scott founded Kaspick & Company in 1989 with Stanford University as its first client, and it grew to be the nation’s leading provider of planned gift investment, administration and program support services to charities nationwide. [Oh, and they happen to be my parents! –Sam]

In my time at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, I met many people (most people) who were well-meaning but more interested in the stability of the job, the almost-impossible chance to be fired and the hope for an automatic pay raise. We can do better![/img_testimonial]
