Philanthropist and community leader Marv Soiland’s legacy to Sonoma County is immeasurable. In addition to a business dynasty, he instilled a philanthropic value into both his family and community. Marv reminded everyone that it is critical to “give ten and save ten”. By employing a tithing model, Marv felt we should all give the first 10% of our income (big or small) to charity, the second 10% to savings and live off the remaining 80%. Daughter Marlene Soiland said, “His philanthropy really was a central theme in his life.”
As a community we are mourning the loss of this great man, but also reflecting on what he has given to make us stronger.
