Meet Marilyn Schimpf and Sheldon Lampert

Meet Marilyn Schimpf and Sheldon Lampert

"Music can bring good hearts together," asserts Marilyn Schimpf, a professional cellist who came to Washington to play with the Air Force Band. She pauses to smile at her husband Sheldon Lampert, a violist with the National Symphony Orchestra, for 40 years. She and Sheldon met playing chamber music at a music teacher's home and discovered they shared a dedication to music, as performers and instructors, and a special joy in playing together. They have been married since 1977.

Today, their "good hearts" extend beyond the musical realm to a passion for philanthropy. Working with Director of Gift Planning Elana Lippa, Marilyn and Sheldon have established charitable gift annuities, enabling them to diversify their retirement income and lower taxable income. As such, they are now members of the Builders of the Future Society at Charles E. Smith Life Communities.

"We feel that the quality care provided to the elderly by Charles E. Smith Life Communities is heartfelt and gives us comfort should we ever need it," says Sheldon. The son of immigrant Jews, he witnessed the tremendous benefit his mother derived from the "exceptionally kind staff" at Menorah Home in Brooklyn where she spent her final years. Marilyn and Sheldon know that their support will ensure the same level of respect and compassion for seniors on our campus.

If you would like more information on how a charitable gift annuity may benefit you, please contact Elana Lippa at lippa@ceslc.org or 301.770.8342.
