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:
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.
Kristen has spent over 15 years in the nonprofit sector, in both staff and consulting roles, primarily focused on program management and partnership development. Currently a doctoral student at the University of the Pacific, studying organizational leadership & innovation, her research interests include organizational development in the nonprofit sector, and how workplace culture affects organizational impact.
Most recently, Kristen served as the Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). Prior to NEDA, Kristen was the Program Director and Acting Executive Director for A Chance to Heal Foundation. She has also worked as the Teen Coordinator for a community center on a military base in England, where she led Boys and Girls Clubs programs for children of service members. True to her collaborative nature, Kristen holds a master’s degree in Human Relations, and is a certified yoga teacher. When she is not studying or working with nonprofits, Kristen can be found traveling to new places (when not quarantined), wandering in nature and reading.
Team Giving inspires, guides and advocates for local non-profits
by matching them with volunteers to complete volunteer projects. Our innovative approach addresses vital community needs while building partnerships between businesses, individuals, service clubs and the nonprofit community.
By connecting interested individuals and groups with non-profits that need their time and talents, Team Giving reduces the burden on non-profits and provides community members with an easy and meaningful way to help improve and strengthen their communities.
Since opening our doors in February of 2016, we have partnered with over 60 non-profit organizations in the greater Sacramento region. We have coordinated with over 1400 volunteers and facilitated 7200+ completed volunteer hours, all to serve those most in need.
Team Giving is creating lasting relationships between volunteer groups and nonprofits in their communities. At Team Giving we inspire compassion and promote giving and our work supports personal growth and community development.
By building these relationships, we create the potential for long-term impact in the community. We create viable connections between those who want to give their time and talents and the nonprofit communities. Volunteers generate additional resources for the people served and help nonprofits meet their missions and goals.
Please visit our website at teamgiving.org for more information on what we do and how we help in the community.
We look forward to working with you to match your volunteer needs.
