Presented by Jon Heintzelman, Executive Vice President,
Ter Molen Watkins & Brandt

Jon Heintzelman has more than 30 years of development experience and is particularly skilled in principal giving and gift planning. Jon's expertise also includes campaign strategy and execution, staff recruitment, training and development, and working with institutional and Board leadership. He served Northwestern University's development office in several positions between 1980 and 1991 when he was appointed Associate Vice President with responsibility for major gifts, planned giving, corporate relations, foundation relations, stewardship and athletic development. In 2003, Jon accepted the position as Vice President for Advancement at Loyola University of Chicago, overseeing development, alumni relations, and special events for all campuses of the University. With Jon's leadership Loyola embarked on it first comprehensive capital campaign in over a decade. With a campaign goal of $500 million, the campaign's goal was five times the previous campaign goal. In 2011, Loyola successfully completed this campaign two years ahead of schedule achieving a record $535 million total gifts.

Jon graduated from North Park University with a BA in economics and he earned his law degree at Northwestern Law School. He has served on the Board of Trustees of North Park as well as its Alumni Board and Campaign Leadership Committee. He also has served as a board member of the American Council on Gift Annuities, the editorial board of the Journal on Gift Planning, and a mentor for the United Negro College Fund. A founding member and first chairperson of the Chicago Council on Planned Giving, he was honored in 2010 when CCPG named its lifetime service award the Jonathan R. Heintzelman Lifetime Service Award, naming Jon the first awardee. In 1993, Jon was named National Planned Giving Professional of the Year by Planned Giving Today and in 2004, he was awarded the AFP Chicago Chapter's Benjamin Franklin Award.
