Kristin Bennett, President and CEO
Kristin has spent the past 27 years sharpening her management skills, specializing in nonprofits.

Educated in California, she launched Nonprofit Resources formally in Denver, CO. The company now operates completely virtually with staff in South Dakota, California, Colorado, Oregon, with auxiliary offices in Alexandria, VA and Minneapolis. Kristin holds a widely varied skill set, and is always seeking out the next challenge. She holds an advanced degree in single-parenting teenagers while growing a meaningful and thriving company; proving there’s no mountain she can’t climb.

She aspires to travel the globe, and would do it on horseback if she could.
