Kia's Story

Who We Are

We are Kia Croom Fundraising & Philanthropy, Inc., a full-scale, Black-woman-owned fundraising firm committed to centering Black and Brown voices across the nonprofit and philanthropy sectors.

We’re a group of salt-of-the-earth fundraising professionals seeking racial justice for Black and Brown folx. 

We are the “Inclusive Fundraising firm,” and believe inclusion is as inclusion does. We don’t just help agencies fundraise, we go the extra mile to ensure their fundraising strategies are rooted in equity and inclusion.
