Meet our Senior Philanthropic Advisor
Wheaton College is intentional about growing the heart of every giver we come in contact with as well as growing our own hearts as we share in community how God is leading us towards Kingdom generosity. We have a position here at Wheaton designed to help families work through this process. David Melilli, as Senior Philanthropic Advisor, provides innovative, tax-efficient solutions to help Kingdom builders maximize their impact, simplify their giving and create a legacy of generosity for their family.
We help families define a legacy of generosity and equip future generations to live as "channels" instead of "cisterns." Wherever you are in your giving journey, we can provide personalized, practical solutions and wise guidance as you navigate these family decisions and strive for Christ-centered biblical generosity.
We believe generosity is developed and grown in a number of ways. Typically it could involve financial advisors, pastors, lawyers, accountants, philanthropic advisors, foundations, and other givers. We continually seek to foster connections among these individuals to maximize our Kingdom impact and provide excellence to the friends of Wheaton College. Families engaged in the process of defining their legacy of generosity need their professional advisors and philanthropic advisors to act in concert to bring about real change and impact. We are excited to have a position here at Wheaton dedicated to fostering these relationships, increasing our ability to serve families for Christ and His Kingdom.
