Madeleine Williams

Maddie is a Philanthropic Associate and in that capacity works closely with the advisory and management staff supporting client engagements.  In her own words: I finished my undergraduate degree thinking I would end up living internationally working for an NGO after studying economic development in Latin America, but soon realized that there was so much to be done within my own country when it comes to finding actionable solutions to global problems. I pursued my Masters in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership in junction with the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy, The academic experience combined with my professional work in higher education fundraising and corporate foundation consulting cemented my commitment to the field of philanthropy. My hope for a better world propels me to help philanthropic individuals, families and institutions effectively realize their missions with innovation, empathy, and thoughtfulness.

Personally, my philanthropic interests include economic support of women and young girls and immigration issues. I prioritize equity and compassion as I work with donors and nonprofit organizations alike and am equal parts diligent and relational in my skillset. Aside from working with clients to facilitate wholehearted and thoughtful giving, I am a Michigan native and moved to Chicago to join Strategic Philanthropy, Ltd. I am an all-seasons distance runner and love to bake, read, travel, and laugh with friends and family.
