The board of directors of the Beebe Medical Foundation has announced that Judy Ludlow Aliquo, CFRE, will serve as the new president and CEO of the Beebe Medical Foundation.
Aliquo will assume overall responsibility for all of the ongoing operations of the foundation, which supports Beebe in realizing its vision of Sussex County becoming one of the healthiest counties in the nation. Her primary focus is on philanthropic efforts, such as the Beebe Annual Fund, planned giving and programmatic fundraising, and future capital campaigns. She also will oversee premier fundraising events, such as the annual art auction in the spring and the Beebe Ball in the fall.
“I am familiar with the strides that Beebe has made in recent years,” says Aliquo, a Delaware native from Wilmington who has regularly visited the area with her husband Jim. “I am honored and excited to continue the important work of the foundation and to raise funds to support Beebe, which provides quality medical care and services to the people in southern Delaware.”
Aliquo joins Beebe Medical Foundation from Wilmington Friends School, where she has worked in fundraising, development and community outreach roles for 23 years. Since 2001, she served as director of development, where she worked with the head of the school and board members to raise funds for a $35 million comprehensive fundraising campaign. In addition, she was responsible for alumni and donor relations, stewardship, and events.
Aliquo, who has a strong background as a business manager and a comptroller, earned her bachelor of science degree in business administration with a major in accounting from Goldey Beacom College in Wilmington.
Aliquo is moving to the Rehoboth Beach area with her husband Jim and dog Lanie. They have two children, Erin and Gabe, who both live and work in the Wilmington area.
“We are pleased that Mrs. Aliquo will take over this important assignment,” says Paul Mylander, chairman of the Beebe Foundation Board of Directors. “She brings a wealth of experience in the development profession and an appreciation of Delaware and the needs of our growing population.”
