About the Speaker
JANELL JOHNSON (Associate Development Director) works with charitable individuals who are inspired to Leave a Legacy in support of preserving musical theatre and increasing access to artful programs for youth in the community. In doing so, she partners with donors and their Professional Advisors to create meaningful giving plans reflected in wills, trusts, and property arrangements to benefit Village Theatre.
Throughout her career, she's had the fortune of working with generous people to explore their values and guide them through specific action steps that lead to transformational gifts. She says, "there is no greater joy than to support individual generosity and witness these special gifts at work in the lives of others."
Prior to joining Village Theatre, Janell was the Associate Director of Development for Gift & Estate Planning at Seattle Opera where she managed Planned Giving and Endowment Building. Janell is a board member for Cultural Access Washington, a statewide cultural advocacy organization, and incoming president for the Washington Planned Giving Council, a network of fundraisers and professional advisors who are committed to planned giving. She is also a Certified Specialist in Planned Giving (CSPG) and proud Rotarian.
