Kim Christenson

Chief Development Officer

Kim came to Days for Girls International with over 20 years of experience in resource development and communications. Her specialty lies in individual giving and grants management in which she has an established and sustained track record of increasing and diversifying revenue sources and expanding the capacity of development departments.

Originally from the Northwest, Kim spent the last decade working for culturally-based community organizations. A common thread and expertise in her work are building culturally relevant development systems in partnership with program staff and board. This was especially evident during her most recent tenure as a development director with the National Indian Child Welfare Association where she played a critical role in addressing philanthropic equity.

Kim earned a master’s degree in International Public Service Management from DePaul University and a bachelor’s degree in economics and global studies from Pacific Lutheran University.
