Kim Bender believes all people deserve to live healthy and fulfilling lives. She is a collaborative team leader with a vision of creating a just and caring community for all. Kim brings a focus on social justice and over twenty years of experience raising funds and developing programs to the executive director role at the Healthcare Foundation. After five years as the development director at the Glide Foundation in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, Kim spent the last year coaching executives at small organizations in the areas of board development and capacity building. One of her guiding principles for communication with all supporters, whether individuals or institutions, is “no stories without data and no data without stories.” Kim has enjoyed working with volunteers on difficult issues of our time, from income inequality to the housing crisis, and looks forward to working with this community on healthcare access and local issues related to the global pandemic. Now in Healdsburg, Kim delights in exploring the scenic byways of Sonoma County on her bicycle.
