Director of Stewardship and Donor Relations
Jillian Young is devoted to fostering meaningful donor experiences as director of Stewardship and Donor Relations. She oversees a comprehensive stewardship program designed to recognize giving at all levels and share with donors the impact their personal philanthropic support has on Illinois State University’s students, faculty, and myriad programs.
Jillian joined Illinois State in 2014 following eight years of development experience with tenures at both James Madison University and Bradley University. Her past roles in annual giving, major giving, and corporate and foundation relations provide a broad foundation for working collaboratively across campus to provide highly personalized stewardship experiences for donors. Jillian is active in her community and church and is particularly pleased to be a volunteer for the Peoria Children’s Home.
