Kimberly Keller

Vice President, Principal Gifts

Kim Keller works with philanthropists who make major investments in Audubon’s conservation programs and goals. Since joining Audubon in December 2011, Keller has raised new funds for both core operations and new initiatives, including multi-state priority Flyway programs that are the foundation of Audubon's expanding conservation network. She partners with the President's Office and Board of Directors to develop and implement Audubon's major donor strategies. 

Keller is committed to strengthening Audubon's major gifts and gift planning programs, focusing on individual giving, which will complement Audubon's strong corporate and foundation relationships. 

Before joining Audubon, Keller was a Regional Vice President with Community Counseling Service (CCS), a leading fundraising consulting firm. During her 12 years at CCS, she developed fundraising strategies, planned and implemented campaigns, cultivated major donors, and managed staff and volunteers. Keller has also directed key projects for The Nature Conservancy's Connecticut and Massachusetts Chapters, National Parks Conservation Association, GreenSeal, and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, in addition to non-conservation projects that included Children's National Medical Center, American Ballet Theatre, the New-York Historical Society, and the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation.
