Marion Sandler: A Pioneer

Center for Responsible Lending
June 4, 2012

CRL is saddened by the passing of Marion Sandler, whose generosity and commitment to causes that matter to our entire country set a high bar for other philanthropists.  She was one of the first women to break through the Fortune 500 “glass ceiling”, but more importantly she pioneered ways for responsible banking to build family and community wealth.  We are deeply grateful for her support of CRL.
