Welcome Kate Biagi-Rickert!

We are pleased to announce that Kate Biagi-Rickert has joined the Foundation as our new Director of Stewardship as of April 24. Meredith Zahirovic, who has been with the Foundation for six years isn’t going far, just down the hallway in fact, to a position with the Felix E. Martin, Jr. Foundation as the Director of Grants. We can’t thank Meredith enough for outstanding service to the Foundation and wish her the best in her new endeavor.

Kate brings with her knowledge of Louisville’s philanthropic community as she was featured on the cover of NFocus Magazine in 2015 as one of the New Faces in Philanthropy and served as last year’s chair of National Philanthropy Day. Additionally, Kate serves on the Executive Board of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Her most recent work experience has been at St. Joseph Children’s Home and Kosair Charities in the areas of development, community outreach and stewardship. She enjoys interacting with donors and making them feel wonderful.  She has devoted her career to making Louisville an even better place to live and work.

Kate obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and Social Work from St. Louis University.  She also has a Master of Science in Social Work with an Emphasis in Nonprofit Administration from Columbia University.

Please feel free to introduce yourself to Kate and call upon her for her help with your fund. She can be reached at 502.855.6942 or [email protected].

We are excited to have Kate as a part of our team!
