MILWAUKEE -- The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin (ACLU) has hired Milwaukee native Maxine Webb as its Development Director.  In Maxine's role as Development Director, she leads the revenue generation strategy for the statewide Annual & Major Gifts programs and represents the ACLU in the community. 

Maxine received her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from UW-Milwaukee.  She is a member of various national professional organizations, including Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

"Service to others and those who are underserved, in particular, is at the core of who I am. I was introduced to the field of philanthropy as an AmeriCorps member and discovered early on that serving in this capacity, and assisting others with investing in causes they care about is truly rewarding & integral in determining the longevity of an organization, said Maxine. “The work the ACLU does is close to my heart, and I am honored to build the capacity of such a vital organization in my home state."

“Maxine understands the urgency of the ACLU's work and shares the importance of the work with donors. She will be an essential part of the team as the ACLU continues to grow, I’m really excited that someone with Maxine’s expertise with nonprofit development has joined our staff,” said Chris Ott, ACLU of Wisconsin Executive Director.
