April Jean, MSW
April brings over 16 years of experience in nonprofit social services, mental health, foster care, child & adult welfare, nonprofit administration and community development to the Impact Foundry team. Prior to joining Impact Foundry, April founded Advocates for Action, a consulting effort focused on reimagining a comprehensive systems approach to improve outcomes for communities of color in the Sacramento region.
April’s undergraduate degree is in Child & Family Studies from Syracuse University, where she was a scholarship women’s basketball player. April went on to earn her MSW from Sacramento State, and most recently was program manager at the North Sacramento Family Resource Center – Birth & Beyond program.
April’s experience as a leader in cultural responsiveness and her willingness to share her insights with nonprofits throughout our region means Impact Foundry is grateful to partner with April to deliver Advocates for Action programming.
Steven is the Impact Foundry’s social butterfly who manages our membership. Prior to working with us, Steven did over ten years of soul searching. He has moved over 15 times in 10 years, across 8 states and a 9 month stay in Chetumal, Mexico. Throughout his travels, Steven has worked in the fields of environmental health and safety, security, emergency management, and risk management.
Steven realized work wasn’t fulfilling and that he wanted to do more with his life. He began volunteering for the Impact Foundry in 2019, after his move to Sacramento, and joined our team in March 2020. Steven holds a master’s degree in Occupational Safety and brings with him a decade of managerial experience from the corporate world.
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 three nonprofit Boards that address regional and national needs:
- Friends of Sacramento Arts addresses the need for arts education in our local public schools. https://friendsofsacramentoarts.org/
- Brightways Learning is a K-12 educational nonprofit working in several states and internationally with teacher tools and programs that build webs of support for youth to thrive. https://www.brightwayslearning.org/
- Kids Helping Kids is a nonprofit corporation run entirely by junior and senior high school students in Sacramento, California. Students are empowered to take the skills they learn in the classroom and apply them to make real, tangible differences in the lives of children locally and globally. http://kidshelpingkidssac.org/
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.
