It’s my pleasure to share that Alice Wood, a member of our Endowment-Building and Professional Advisor committees, has accepted an offer as our new Director of Gift Planning. She will start remotely beginning on Monday, August 10.


Alice brings a wealth of experience to the team given her background as an estate planning attorney, entrepreneur, author, financial literacy instructor, and business development director for Ameriprise/North Star Wealth Group. She is also a volunteer force throughout the community with multi-generational ties to Naperville and DuPage County and has been our foremost referral source for gifts the past couple of years.


A more formal announcement will be forthcoming to our constituents, but we wanted to share the good news with you first. Please see her résumé attached and her LinkedIn bio here for more detail.


Thanks! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and look forward to introducing you to Alice soon.


Mchael Strick, JD, CFRE | Vice President for Advancement
