Kim Gattle appointed as Deputy Director for Institutional Advancement at the Indianapolis Museum of Art
Gattle has more than 20 years of experience in fundraising and development work.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN.- This new addition to the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s senior leadership team will assist in building a more secure financial foundation for the institution, according to Dr. Charles L. Venable, The Melvin & Bren Simon Director and CEO of the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

Kim Gattle has been named the museum’s new Deputy Director for Institutional Advancement. While Gattle will officially join the IMA in November, she will immediately become involved with strategic planning for the IMA’s membership and fundraising activities. In her role, Gattle will work with the staff and board to develop and implement a comprehensive fundraising plan for the institution. The strategic plan will focus on increasing the museum’s engagement with donors, members, and the public with the ultimate goal of growing the IMA’s annual support, major and capital gifts, membership revenue, foundation and government grants, corporate partnerships, and planned gifts.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Kim Gattle to the IMA’s leadership team,” Venable said. “I have great confidence that her depth of knowledge in institutional advancement and her winning personality will serve the IMA well as we work to grow support for the extraordinary art and nature experiences we deliver to the public every day.”

Venable continued, “This is a critical time for the IMA—one of innovation and creativity—as we prepare to launch exciting new programming, unprecedented exhibitions and a monumental new art addition to our campus, Roy Lichtenstein’s Five Brushstrokes sculpture currently being installed on The Dudley and Mary Louise Sutphin Mall. These initiatives present fresh opportunities for donor engagement and financial growth, and I am confident that Gattle is the right person at the right time for the IMA.”

Gattle has more than 20 years of experience in fundraising and development work. She is currently the president and founder of Gattle & Company, an Indianapolis-based fundraising consulting firm. Previously, Gattle served as the director of fundraising and institutional advancement at The Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University. In this position, she directed the launch of a $100 million endowment campaign that resulted in record-level funding from individuals as well as local and national foundations, including the largest grant ever received in the Center’s history. Gattle’s experience also includes leadership positions within the Indiana University School of Medicine, Walther Cancer Institute, New Hope of Indiana Development Corporation and her family’s Florida-based company, Gattle’s Inc.

“Philanthropy is central to achieving the IMA's aspirational goals,” said Gattle. “I’m honored to lead the IMA’s development team and help take the fundraising program to a new level of sustained performance.”

Gattle is a graduate of University of Florida and received her master’s degree in philanthropic studies from the Lilly Family School on Philanthropy at Indiana University. She is a faculty member at The Fund Raising School and an author on the subject of major gift fundraising.
