With a Master’s Degree in communications & nonprofit management, and a professional Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), Kimberly Grady Brock’s education, combined with 20+ years of nonprofit experience, have proven her an exceptional nonprofit leader and consultant. Able to translate innovative business principles & true philanthropic passion into maximum revenue & community impact, the demand for her services has led her to work with a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout Florida and the US. Her expertise has been utilized by professional associations, community foundations, private foundations, nonprofits, schools and more.
Considering herself first and foremost an advocate in the movement to improve the efficiency and impact of the nonprofit sector, Brock’s ideas constantly confront the timeworn constraints of nonprofit thinking. Her visionary, strategic and team-oriented approach give each initiative the greatest chance of success, and have earned her a reputation for consistently leading nonprofits into a new period of exceptional growth and impact.
No matter the progress made with each nonprofit, however, it never seems to be enough. Brock’s many years of experience, as well as her extensive study of and training within the nonprofit sector, has led her to believe that the natural state of philanthropy today is underperformance. This is unacceptable if we hope to hold a place in the future of growing technology, exploding communication, increased collaboration and changing work environments.
That said, there are many new groups and individuals with much greater resources already researching these issues, and searching for the most efficient and realistic ways to improve the impact of our nonprofit sector. By collaborating with these experts, Brock creates fresh and effective approaches she then translates to organizations through her writing and consulting services.
This blog is one way to inspire and inform others about the importance of philanthropic change. If you would like to know more about Brock, communicate ideas or follow her around as her explorations and viewpoints continue to evolve, connect with her via one of the below options.

Kim Brock is an outstanding, honest, creative and attractive young woman who consistently thinks of every solution to a problem or situation, which is a rare quality. And this is whether it’s a financial recommendation or decision (saving the company money) or regarding company personnel where she has to make difficult decisions that are best for the company. Kim is a fair and wise worker but can operate just as well as a leader. She also listens carefully to whoever she is talking to. Kim makes the effort and tries and usually succeeds.
I’ve run a production company for The Discovery Channel producing 200 plus programs with 24 employees, been a marketing director for three major companies and an asst. mke dir for a Fortune 500 Co. so I most likely know what I’m talking about. Because of this I’m often asked for recommendations but unfortunately can recommend only those I believe in, only the best, only those I trust and only those I know will do a good and sincere job wherever they land.
