    Kim Gattle is the director of development and communications for the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University.

    Gattle is the first alumna of the Center's Master of Arts in Philanthropic Studies degree program to head its development efforts. She is a member of that program's inaugural graduating class and a graduate of The Fund Raising School at the Center. From 2002 until 2005, she was a member of the Center's board of governors. Gattle was a leader in helping to create the Center on Philanthropy Alumni Association and served as its president in 2000-2001.

    Before joining the Center, Gattle was executive associate director of major and planned gifts for the Indiana University School of Medicine, the second largest medical school in the nation. During that time the school successfully completed a comprehensive $375 million capital campaign.

    Gattle's professional life has included leadership in both private business and the nonprofit sector. She previously was executive director and corporate officer for Gattle's, a 101-year-old, multidivisional retail corporation. Her career in the nonprofit sector includes serving as director of development for Walther Cancer Institute and as executive director of New Hope Development Corporation, a residential rehabilitation facility in Indianapolis.

    Committee to serving her community, Gattle has been an active participant on several non-profit boards, both in Naples, Florida and Indianapolis, Indiana. Examples include the Greater Indianapolis YMCA, the Horizon House, and Girls, Inc. of Collier County.

    In addition to a master’s degree from the Center on Philanthropy, Gattle earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida, and studied at both the University of Guanajuato in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and the Instituto de Lengua Espanol in San Jose, Costa Rica.
