Donor Spotlight - David and Linda Wesselink
Our donors are a diverse group of family members, business professionals, and community members who are all committed to Glenkirk’s mission to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live full, connected lives in the community. In celebration of these champions, the Heritage Society Newsletter is excited to highlight the generosity and compassion of two of our most dedicated donors, David and Linda Wesselink. Together, they exemplify the incredible impact our donors have on the lives of the individuals we serve here at Glenkirk.
Although David and Linda do not have a loved one with a developmental disability, they have been supporting Glenkirk for the past six years, since the very first Trailblazers event. When asked why they give, Linda had this to say: “Glenkirk does amazing work, and David and I enjoy giving back to organizations where our gift will be put to good use and make a significant impact on the lives of those that need it most.”
David is also currently serving on the board of the Keystone Foundation, and is the chair of its finance committee. In addition to their annual support of Trailblazers, the Wesselinks also give to the Heritage Society in order to help create endowment funds for Glenkirk.
Through this visionary leadership and philanthropy, the Wesselinks are helping ensure that Glenkirk has a bright future. “Our hope is that others will join us in the Heritage Society”, said David. “With continuing strategic support from donors, family and friends, Glenkirk will have the reserve and endowed funds it needs for financial stability, and can grow its ability to serve those with developmental disabilities for years to come.”
David and Linda live in Northbrook. Their son, Bill Wesselink, is the Co-founder of Dovetail Brewery.
