December 11, 2023

The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa is excited to welcome Derek Kimball to our staff as the Director of Charitable Impact. Derek will focus on connecting people to the causes they care about most, in turn increasing the impact of the Community Foundation. His experience with the nonprofit community gives him knowledge of community needs and allows him to help identify philanthropic opportunities for those who want to give back to their community. Derek will primarily work with fundholders and donors in Black Hawk, Bremer, Butler, Franklin, Grundy, and Tama counties, and the Ackley community.

“I am very excited to be part of the incredible mission of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa," says Derek. "I truly believe in making our communities stronger, more equitable places, and I look forward to working with generous people who want to be part of enriching communities across Iowa.”

Derek joins CFNEIA after serving over five years as the Executive Director of Cedar Valley Angels, a nonprofit focused on the foster care community. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics with a teaching emphasis from the University of Northern Iowa. Derek lives in Waterloo with his wife, Kristen, and their five children.
