Gift Planning Liaison Program
In order to better serve their advancement colleagues, the UIF Office of Gift Planning and Trust Services (GPTS) offers the Gift Planning Liaison Program. A gift planner from GPTS is assigned to each university, college, or unit to ensure ongoing support and integration with front-line fundraising efforts. This maximizes fundraising success and ensures ongoing communication between GPTS and each unit’s advancement team.
Gift Planning Liaisons provide support in a variety of ways, including consultation on prospect strategy and potential gift structure, strategic planning around gift planning initiatives, content creation and review of marketing efforts, training and education for staff and prospective donors, follow up on Generations leads and marketing responses, and stewardship of deferred gifts.
Gift Planning Liaison assignments are as follows:
UIS, Vet Med, AHS, FAA, Social Work, EDU, LER and WILL – Justin Seno
UIC, all medicine (regardless of campus – except Carle-Illinois), Gies – Jason Shuba
LAS, Law, Library, iSchool, Allerton, Student Affairs, Uni-High – Jeff Roley
Media, Carle-Illinois College of Medicine, all Urbana Institutes – Shari Fox
ACES, ENG, DIA/Athletics – Meg Cline
This program does not preclude a gift officer from choosing to work with someone they choose. GPTS encourages gift officers to work with the gift planning officer best suited for the needs of the donor. If you have questions about the Gift Planning Liaison Program, please contact Meg Cline at 217-244-0800.
