It’s Not Goodbye, Just See You Later.

In true millennial entrepreneurial fashion, and based very much on the passion and vision she brought to Charities Review Council, our Director of Engagement & Donor Services, Kate Downing Khaled, transitioned to a new, self-directed consulting role starting in January. While we’re sad to see her go, this is a great opportunity both for her and also for Charities Review Council.

“Part of my work at Charities Review Council has been to create and execute engagement and program strategy that aligns with our core mission of mobilizing donors and nonprofits for the greater good. I feel great about what I’ve accomplished and I’m excited to bring those skill to bear in the larger community.”

Kate’s consulting work will focus on partnering with social sector organizations to build equity and community engagement into their strategic initiatives. Some of her offerings will include facilitating collaborative user-centered design projects and helping philanthropies remove process barriers to engaging new-to-them communities.

This lines right up with the work she did with Charities Review Council. Kate helped the Council build equity and community engagement into our major programs. From our standards review process to reinventing our annual forum convening work, Kate has brought new voices and vision to our nearly 70 year old mission.

“We’ve done beautiful work together, and anyone who knows me understands that I’ll always be personally invested in Charities Review Council’s mission and future. But now it’s time for me to live the same advice I give to donors and nonprofits  – that advice is to take risks, do things a little bit differently and be entrepreneurial.”

For those of you who don’t know Kate – she’s a bridge builder, so she won’t be a stranger. We’ll look forward to blurring the lines and being ‘radical’ in how we collaborate together with her in the future. For now, you can get in touch with her on LinkedIn or visit her website at KateKhaled.com.

The great work Kate made happen at the Council continues.
