Kimberlee Salmond

Director of Research and Learning, Oregon Community Foundation

Kimberlee Salmond is the Director, Research and Learning, at the Oregon Community Foundation, which is proud to have one of the largest internal research teams among community foundations nationwide. The team’s work informs OCF priorities, activities, and operations through evaluations that help understand the impact of grantmaking and other philanthropic efforts; internal reflection on foundation practices and policies; and original research on topic areas, regions and populations relevant to OCF and donor priorities/interests, all grounded in principles of equity, relationship building and collaboration, and learning and inquiry.

Most recently, Kimberlee was the VP of Research and Impact at Girl Scouts of the USA. She has also worked with Families and Work Institute, Re:Gender, and the Legislative Commission on the Economic Status of Women in Minnesota. She has a Master’s Degree in Women and Public Policy from the University of Minnesota and a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Kalamazoo College in Michigan.

Looking forward, Kimberlee is most excited about supporting a culture of learning at OCF and continuing to explore her (relatively) new home state, which includes many food-related adventures and walks with the family dog, Frances.
