Brooke Wenzel, Assistant Gift Planning Program Director

Dear Colleagues: 
I am excited to announce Brooke Wenzel’s promotion to Assistant Gift Planning Program Director.  Brooke will be taking on a new role within the Office of Gift Planning focusing her efforts on several processes within the gift planning operations.  For example, Brooke will work as our coordinator of the Donor Advised Fund (“DAF”) program to coordinate DAF administration and serve as primary point of contact for the maintenance and management of our DAFs.  Given her past experience with the DAF program, she will work to advance the service offerings provided to our donors within this program.  She will also work with the Gift Planning team to help streamline and improve the overall gift planning process and the management of planned gifts.  
Brooke holds a BA in Biology from the College of St. Benedict and is currently pursuing her MBA from IUSB.  Prior to her arrival at Notre Dame, Brooke spent a year volunteering for AmeriCorps and two years doing legal research for Thomson Reuters in Washington, DC.   
In her current role as Administrative Assistant to Rich Naponelli and Rob Ortiz, Brooke has shown that she is committed to excellence in the work she does for Gift Planning and Development and is always eager to help others. We will immediately post the opening for an Administrative Assistant on our team to fill Brooke’s position and look for a talented individual to join our great group of administrative assistants.
Please join me in congratulating Brooke!
Best regards,
Greg Dugard

Associate Vice President
University Relations
