Giving Team Spotlight: Nicole Stuke

breiby@growyourgiving.orgGiving Team Spotlight

Philanthropic Advisor Nicole Stuke works specifically with nonprofits to help them plan for their financial future through agency funds.

Nicole has worked in the nonprofit landscape for more than 20 years and is dedicated to helping organizations meet their strategic goals. Before joining the Community Foundation, Nicole worked for the American Heart Association and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Nicole works closely with nonprofits to establish agency funds, a fund set up by a charity to benefit that specific charity. Agency funds allow nonprofit organizations to build long-term assets, establish a home for reserve funds, and enjoy low-cost investment options and third-party oversight of assets.

“My role is to listen closely to a nonprofit’s strategic goals and help them plan for their long-term financial needs. It’s rewarding to support nonprofits that are dedicated to so many great causes and help ensure that they can serve Kansas City for many years to come.”

No stranger to working alongside passionate people, Nicole enjoys working together with others committed to making a difference.

“I love being able to learn about the needs in our community by listening to nonprofits and understanding their services and mission,” says Nicole. “Every day I get to work with other passionate professionals who make it their life’s work to give back to others.”
