From foster care to public radio, Kim has helped nonprofits develop programs, attract funding, and expand the delivery of their mission. Today, Kim is leading Impact Foundry in partnership with an engaged Board and stellar staff team.
In 2006, Kim joined 3fold Communications to launch the nonprofit division, focused on capacity building for faith and community-based organizations and serving the interests of corporate community benefit programs. Local, statewide and national foundations engaged 3fold to help strengthen grantee organizations; and Kim and her team developed grantmaking programs and training modules to help nonprofit organizations improve upon and demonstrate their impact. In 2015, 3fold sponsored Kim to assume the helm at Nonprofit Resource Center, and to lead its expansion and transformation to Impact Foundry.
Today, Kim is having the time of her life creating new pathways of impact within the nonprofit sector in her role as executive director. The Impact Foundry team is focused on strengthening the capacity and influence of nonprofit organizations – social profits that work tirelessly to save and change lives, improve our economy and our environment, and provide a full spectrum of opportunity for today’s and tomorrow’s leaders.
Kim believes our future depends on well-equipped, engaged youth and for that reason serves on two nonprofit Boards that address regional and national needs:
Kim is from Alaska, where she grew up playing with bears and catching salmon with her bare hands. Most of the time, she tells the truth.
Global technology businessperson to local nonprofit executive, that is the transformation that John has undergone in the last decade. After 20 years in the corporate world, most recently leading a worldwide business unit, focused on large technology infrastructure projects John made a purposeful transition to the nonprofit sector and has never looked back. After consulting for two years to the sector, on matters like strategic planning and fund development, John led a local Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program for seven years before recently joining The Impact Foundry.
When John made this critical transition in 2008, the Nonprofit Resource Center (as it was then known) was one of the first places he went. There he found training, education and most importantly, encouragement to make the change based on a shared belief that it was the right thing to do. Today, John brings a combination of business acumen, along with a deep passion for the mission, to his new assignment of helping to spearhead the critical business, foundation, philanthropic and government partnerships required to help nonprofits increase their capacity, impact and sustainability.
Megan joined Impact Foundry through her Masters in Social Work Program at the University of Southern California. A true Californian, she spent her early years in Silicon Valley, her school-aged years in Northern California’s Wine Country, and finished high school and university in Southern California. Megan gained her BA in Psychology from Cal State Long Beach and shortly thereafter moved to Santa Cruz. It was there that she was introduced to the non-profit sector, working as an instructor for children with special needs. Megan attributes many of her professional skills to her days working as an administrative assistant in both Orange County and Sacramento. She is excited to be gaining knowledge and experience at Impact Foundry that will help her achieve her aspirations toward directing a nonprofit organization herself someday. Megan lives in Davis with her husband, who works in research at the University of California. In her spare time, she enjoys rollerblading, Zumba, crafting and karaoke.
