About Ken

Ken serves the Foundation as the Vice President of Development & Donor Engagement.  He and his team are focused on building the philanthropic assets that the Foundation manages to better serve our community through creation of new funds, increased engagement and investment from existing fundholders, and partnerships with other donors who share the Foundation’s vision to build a vibrant Triangle that works together to ensure everyone thrives.

Ken joined the Foundation in 2015 and brings more than 30 years of experience in non-profit management, brand positioning, and marketing. Previously he was Vice President of Development for Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina and prior to that, Executive Director of Planning and Development at Duke Children’s Hospital.  Ken also earned his CFRE in 2009, certifying his long-standing commitment to uphold the highest standards of ethics, professional performance, and service to donors.

A Connecticut native, Ken came to the Triangle area in 1984 to attend Duke University, fell in love with the area and has immersed himself in many local community activities since that time. He enjoys spending time with his wife, his three grown children and their significant others, all of whom live in the Triangle, and his two APS rescue dogs.
