Lorraine del Prado has been in charitable planning and fund development for more than 27 years. She has consulted with organizations nationally and has led operations that raised hundreds of millions of dollars in outright and legacy gifts for various nonprofits.

Lorraine loves guiding and facilitating the estate planning journey of individuals, helping them clarify the highest purposes of their assets for themselves, their family and the causes they care about and create a strategic distribution plan that is reflective of their values and intended legacy.

Being raised in the Philippines has been a defining influence in her life.  Having witnessed a lot of poverty when she was growing up and acknowledging the unearned privilege of being born in the middle class, she has made it a personal mission to give back through her work and personal life and to always live life with gratitude.  Reflecting the culture’s high regard for elders, Lorraine loves interacting with seniors, listening to their life stories and honoring their contributions to society.

Lorraine lives with her husband Tom and their dog Teddy in Mercer Island, Washington.  In her free time, she enjoys watching movies, the opera and symphony performances with her husband; hiking the scenic trails of the Pacific Northwest; visiting her family in the Philippines; and taking Argentine tango lessons.
