“The American Heart Association Bay Area team has benefited from Kathy’s consulting and leadership coaching as part of the KDD Philanthropy’s webinar offering. The conversation was inspiring and actionable lifting the team to think more broadly about new stewardship strategies. Especially during the early months of COVID, Kathy was able to focus the team on a clear path forward alongside our executive team.” — Maria Olson, Senior Vice President, Western States, American Heart Association

There is no shortage of professional development opportunities for your advancement team. At KDD Philanthropy, we believe that an institution’s success requires a commitment to developing team talent — and that the return on this investment is largest when trainings are grounded in practice, immediately applicable, and built to create long-term learning.
Our webinar series provides you and your team the support, theory, and practical tools you need to excel — especially in these uncertain times. And, every webinar KDD Philanthropy offers includes a take-away exercise for participants, designed specifically to reinforce key learnings and facilitate ongoing team dialogue.

“I have been fortunate to be involved in training sessions run by Kathy. Her vast knowledge within philanthropy is shown through the sessions she delivers. The training Kathy has delivered gave me the ability to think about the role I have been doing, and what I can do differently in my approach to my work. I highly recommend Kathy for philanthropy training; her approach is fresh and energetic.” — Bea Kuncic, Principal Gifts Officer, University of New South Wales
