Meiling Kimmel

Associate Director of Development Strategy

Meiling started working in nonprofit development and fundraising in 2004 and she’s been hooked ever since. She loves the way that charitable giving empowers families and businesses to connect with each other; learn from their communities; and come together to identify solutions and make a lasting impact. She is passionate that young people feel strengthened and supported by their communities, so FriendsPDX has been a natural fit for her since she joined the staff in 2012. Meiling loves small everyday adventures, all kinds of food and drink, and naps. If you can’t find Meiling in front of her computer, she’s probably at a park or festival, berry-picking with her family, or star-gazing from her deck.
