Christine Kutnick, CFRE runs her life based on her favorite quote “People will forget what you said, what you did but they will always remember how you made them feel” (~ Maya Angelou). With more than 20 years of experience non-profit management, Christine has worked for all types of charitable organization. She has shared her time with small, scrappy non-profits and has been a Major Gifts Officer for Texas’ largest University.
Christine started her senior level non-profit as the Executive Director for the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ), formerly known as National Conference of Christians and Jews. As Executive Director, Christine was responsible for fundraising, program development, advocacy and leadership development. After the events of 9/11, NCCJ was instrumental in bringing together faith, government, non-profit, school and corporate leaders to help the community heal.
Since then, she has worked for amazing organizations such as CHRISTUS Spohn Foundation (Special Projects Coordinator), Texas Dental Association Smiles Foundation (Executive Director), Con Mi MADRE (Director of Development and Communications, and University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business (Major Gifts Officer).
In 2009, Christine also began providing guidance to individuals who wanted to start an non-profit and to organizations wanting to grow their impact. As a consultant, she helped them create strategic plans, identify funding opportunities, and develop strong boards.
In 2006, Christine was awarded the professional designation of Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) and is a graduate of Leadership Corpus Christi and is a member of Leadership Texas.
