Bente Weitekamp Joins JGA as Senior Consultant

  • by

We are excited to welcome the newest addition to the JGA team, Bente Weitekamp, who has joined the firm as Senior Consultant as of July 8, 2024. Bente brings over two decades of experience engaging transformative donors to support causes across healthcare, higher education, and human services.

Most recently, Bente served for 12 years as Vice President of Development for the Community Health Network Foundation in Indianapolis. The Network’s 200+ providers service a diverse patient base in central Indiana, and the Network philanthropic team’s engagement has resulted in record giving to support that mission during her leadership.

“Bente is a relationship-driven leader who truly lives the mission of advancing philanthropy. In our competitive search, we found her to be a perfect match for JGA’s culture. Her extensive experience and action-driven leadership will help propel the success of JGA clients. We are truly excited about her addition to our consulting team,” said JGA’s incoming Chief Executive Officer Lee Ernst.

Watch for news on Bente’s impact with JGA clients in coming months, along with additional announcements about the growing JGA team.

JGA is a team of 20 individuals that combines deep expertise in philanthropy with fast paced innovation in predictive analytics. We partner with nonprofits nationally to elevate their missions.

“While the philanthropic landscape continues to evolve, donors remain a nonprofit’s biggest asset,” says Weitekamp. “I’ve long admired JGA’s success in partnering with diverse nonprofits to elevate donor engagement and drive powerful mission outcomes. As a fundraiser, I am eager to partner with our clients to grow their donor relationships and maximize the donor experience.”
