Spertus welcomes Nancy Glazer as Director of Development

Spertus Director of Development Nancy Glazer
grew up with four siblings and a large extended
family in Shaker Heights, Ohio. Her parents were very involved with their synagogue, introducing her from an early age to the important work Jewish organizations do for the community.

Putting this belief into practice, she began her career with the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County in New York, then moved on to
roles including campaign director for the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis and vice president of the Columbus Jewish Federation.
She moved to Chicago in 2009 to be nearer to her children and young grandchildren (although we have trouble believing she’s really a grandmother). Before taking the position at Spertus, she served as director of advancement for the Solomon Schechter Day School of Metropolitan Chicago.

“For me, it is a privilege to have the opportunity to continue serving the Jewish community through my work at Spertus,” she said. “Spertus has been a trusted and respected institution since 1924 — in Chicago and communities around the world. I look forward to helping our donors
foster Jewish learning and leadership through the important work Spertus does.”

“I have been extremely impressed by the outstanding and varied programs Spertus offers. I am most looking forward to building new relationships to help sustain and grow these dynamic learning opportunities that enrich the lives of our visitors and educate new leaders who go on to invigorate the community,” she said.
