Kristin Gardner
Kristin serves as Associate Director of Major Gifts. With a diverse background in nonprofit management and a passion for social justice, she’s held development positions at Arthritis Foundation, Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, and most recently served as Major Gifts Officer at The New York Women’s Foundation. She received her BA and MA in Communication Studies from Texas Tech University. Her graduate studies focused on gender communication and included research entitled “Women Articulating their Feminist Standpoints” which allowed space for women to discuss how they navigate their intersecting identities in a conservative environment. During this time she spent many years as a public speaking instructor. When she’s not running around New York City discussing ways to continue to fuel justice movements, she enjoys yoga and spending time with her partner and dog-children in Brooklyn.
