Here is what a sampling of Kimberly satisfied clients had to say…

“I have known Kim for approximately 2 years, in her role as Director of Philanthropy at Ruyton Girls’ School. During this time, Kim took on a leadership role for a collaboration of independent girls’schools, including Melbourne Girls Grammar, that met regularly to discuss issues relating to philanthropy in the independent girls’ school sector in Melbourne. The group included Chairs of School Foundations, Chairs of School Council or Boards and Directors of Development or Community Relations.”

Kim Downes has an impressive knowledge of all aspects of fundraising including annual appeals, major gifts and bequests. She has worked in the educational sector (both schools and tertiary), the health sector and other not-for-profits. Kim is passionate about fundraising and working with organisations to develop a fundraising program tailored to fulfil their requirements.

“Kim is a very experienced person in the area of philanthropy, with a great connection to those she works with. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kim. She is honest, reliable and has a great work ethic. She is a great team player and managed to foster positive discussions in our meetings.”

“Kim’s knowledge of philanthropy was a great asset to our organisation. She developed the philanthropy structure and we have all learned and been inspired by her approach and enthusiasm. She will be greatly missed.”

Robyn Kanat

“Kim was able to bring a depth of experience to the group from her background in the education sector but also due to her exposure to corporate philanthropy from her time working as a consultant. This assisted the group to analyze issues in depth and work collaboratively to assist each other and address challenges that are unique to the independent girls’ school sector.”
