News About Giving Tree Associates

Dear Friends,

We hope this note finds you safe and healthy. Given the unfortunate nature of today’s economic climate and the negative impact it is having on the nonprofit sector, we have taken some time to re-examine our business model and explore our respective visions for the future. 

In doing so, we have decided it is best for our firm to adapt to this new environment by making some near term changes. As of June 1, 2020, Giving Tree Associates will begin to wind down its work, and Amy and Stefanie will each continue to service clients in the nonprofit sector as separate business entities.

We have enjoyed the benefits of a strong partnership for over twelve years and will continue to benefit from each other’s wisdom and experience, but now as colleagues rather than partners. We are extraordinarily grateful for the support and dedication of our clients, friends, and colleagues in the nonprofit sector. It is because of you that we are able to continue doing this important work. 

As we move forward, you can reach Amy at or 847.942.6071 and Stefanie at or 312.505.4686. Our former email addresses will stay active for the time being, but we look forward to introducing you to our new entities in the very near future. Until then, we wish you continued health and well-being and welcome any questions you may have. 

With Gratitude,

Amy Schiffman & Stefanie Pessis Weil
