We’re happy to introduce Kathleen Ramsey as Wiki Education’s new Director of Donor Relations.
Kathleen comes from BrightFocus Foundation, where she managed a portfolio of foundations and corporations in an effort to cure diseases of mind and sight. Before BrightFocus, she administered major and planned gifts at Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She is excited to bring her grant-writing, prospect research, and relationship-building expertise with a variety of funders to Wiki Education.
Kathleen will focus on building new relationships to expand Wiki Education’s prospect pipeline and to attract new donors. She will research grant making organizations and corporate sponsors, gain insight into their interests and beliefs, and position our organization to them. Furthermore, she will ensure that the donor experience is positive and constructive; ensure Wiki Education stewards all donor constituencies and key stakeholders; ensure that Wiki Education’s supporters and partners receive timely ongoing communications, acknowledgment, and appropriate donor recognition opportunities.
In all of this, Kathleen aims to build the long-term financial sustainability of Wiki Education Foundation’s operations and programs.
Outside of the office, Kathleen enjoys working on her fiction novel, traveling to new places, hiking with her fiancé, obsessing over her two kitties, and laughing at YouTube videos.
Welcome to Wiki Education, Kathleen!
