Kimberly Crichton

Executive Director

Kimberly joined the staff of the Maine Women’s Fund as the Grants Director in 2017, having previously served as a contracted Grants Coordinator since 2013. She learned about the Maine Women’s Fund, and philanthropy, as a participant in the New Girls’ Network in 2003-2004. As a result of that experience, she became interested in philanthropy, and how funders and non-profits can best work together to achieve their missions and advance lasting change, and she is thrilled to be a part of that change. In 2012, after nine years designing, developing, and managing grant programs at the Maine Health Access Foundation, she founded her own business, Transform. LLC, focused on advancing social change.

Kimberly lives in Western ME and when she is not working, she spends her time outside, or in the studio, and on any number of grand adventures with her dog.  She is always inspired exploring the mountains and lakes around her home, visiting the urban wonders of Portland and Lewiston, exploring the sweet, hidden treasures in the southern tip of Maine, and traveling North to her hometown of Bangor and beyond.  She is so grateful for all the different Maine communities that have shaped and informed her life and her experiences.
