The Tipping Point Community, a nonprofit fighting poverty in the Bay Area, has appointed Kimberly Davis Wells as its Chief Communications and Events Officer. Jaimie Cohen from Patino Associates led the search for this role based in San Francisco, CA.
Kimberly will serve as the “chief storyteller” for Tipping Point and build its brand, creative vision and event strategy for over 30 events per year. Tipping Point is at a pivotal moment in fulfilling its mission as it considers its role in shifting the narrative around the systemic causes of poverty and subsequent solutions for the Bay Area. Kimberly will elevate the cultural context for this work, the stories of clients and grantees impacted by this work and the imperative for supporting this work, from the Bay Area community and existing and potential donors. Reporting to Sam Cobbs, CEO of Tipping Point, Kimberly will build the very first communications strategy for the organization.
Prior to joining Tipping Point, Kimberly led a number of CSR and social impact engagements with her clients at Fenton, a communications firm centered on social change.
Tipping Point’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty for people in the Bay Area who don’t have the resources to meet their basic needs. Since 2005, Tipping Point has invested nearly $350 million for housing, early childhood, education, and employment solutions in the region. Its board covers 100% of its operating costs, so every dollar donated goes where it’s needed most. Last year, 500,000 people in the Bay Area connected with their grantees.
