Robyn Kress
EVP, Philanthropy

I put purpose into practice by…

helping nonprofits around the country raise money for transformative capital and comprehensive campaigns that benefit their communities, and the world.

Robyn leads the Campaign Readiness practice at August Jackson and is responsible for monitoring healthcare, higher education and nonprofit philanthropy to ensure our client’s campaigns are evolving to engage today’s modern donor-investor communities. She guides the performance of the Campaign Readiness team and also works with clients to align internal stakeholders with the mission, develop brand connectivity that elevates the mission, triggers donor action, and inspires long-term loyalty.

She has led projects for a broad range of institutions such as Northwell Health, Rice University, Harvard Business School, the Smithsonian Institution, and Duke University. Robyn has held leadership positions at major research universities and national nonprofit organizations, guiding staff and cultivating and closing multimillion-dollar gifts.
