Equipping nonprofits to advance social change

Kim Klein


Kim Klein is an internationally known speaker and author, known for her ability to deliver information in a practical and humorous way.  She has worked in all aspects of fundraising:  as staff, as a volunteer and as a board member.  Kim is the author of five books including Reliable Fundraising in Unreliable Times which won the McAdam Book Award in 2010.  Her classic text, Fundraising for Social Change, now in its sixth edition, is widely used in the field and in university programs.  She also wrote Fundraising for the Long Haul, Ask and You Shall Receive, and Fundraising in Times of Crisis.  She co-founded the Grassroots Fundraising Journal in 1981 and was its publisher for 25 years. She has provided training and consultation in all 50 United States, five Canadian provinces and 21 other countries.  She serves on the board of the California Association of Nonprofits and on the Advisory Board of Nonprofit VOTE.  Her work with the Building Movement Project is focused on the role nonprofits need to play in creating fair and just tax policies, and why and how nonprofits can work to protect “the commons”— that which we own in common (parks, libraries, the internet) or that which cannot be owned (clean air, wilderness, fresh water) but must be preserved and passed down to future generations.  Kim believes that the nonprofit sector has a critical role to play in the creation and maintenance of a democratic society.
