Terri HempsteadRetired - Planned & Major Gifts
Terri Hempstead coordinated planned and major gifts to support NPR Illinois through 2023.
Terri joined the UIS Office of Advancement as Director of Development in April of 2018. She worked to identify donors interested in strengthening the NPR Illinois mission of informing and engaging the community.
Terri’s career in fundraising spanned 20 years, most recently at St. Joseph’s Home of Springfield. She found the work deeply satisfying. “People who love to give love to give, and I’m happy to help them find the most satisfying way to do that,” she said.
As a long-time resident of Springfield, Terri considers UIS a vital part of the community. “The influence of the public affairs focus—which is certainly what many long-time locals value about UIS—has rippled throughout our state government. And NPR Illinois reaches so many people who have perhaps no other connection.”
