Milwaukee, WI – The Bradley Impact Fund has announced its senior leadership today. Gabe Conger, former director of philanthropy for the fund, has become its president. Conger will be tasked with overseeing the fund’s daily operations, enhancing its visibility, and developing long-term growth strategies. 

“As president, Gabe will strengthen the effectiveness and efficiency of the Impact Fund at this critical time in its short history, “ said Mike Grebe, chairman of the Bradley Impact Fund. “Gabe’s dedication to the principles and institutions of American exceptionalism and his strong experience within the conservative philanthropic community will help the fund advance its mission and increase its impact.”

Conger has spent the past decade working in conservative philanthropy. Prior to joining the Bradley Impact Fund, he served as advisor to the president for donor relations at The Heritage Foundation, where he communicated Heritage’s mission and impact to current and prospective members across the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States.

Jessica Dean, the Fund’s previous president, will move into the newly create role of senior vice president for development, enabling her to continue the work she has done to significantly grow the Fund, while giving her flexibility to address recent health challenges.

“We thank Jessica for her service as president of the Impact Fund during this time of transformation and growth,” said Grebe. “Her tenacity, unique ability to invigorate the donor community and her commitment to advancing American ideals have helped make the Impact Fund one of the fastest growing conservative, donor-advised funds in the country.”

The Milwaukee-based Bradley Impact Fund is a donor-advised fund that supports American constitutional liberties and ideals. It has quickly become one of the nation’s leading conservative donor-advised funds, growing from $3.5 million in 2013 to more than $9 million last year. 

The Bradley Impact Fund shares a vision with The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation of a nation invigorated by the principles and institutions that uphold our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Their unique partnership gives conservative donors a strategic, yet flexible way to advance their charitable giving. For more information, please click here.
