Frank Aalderinks is Head of the Philanthropy Advice department at ABN AMRO. Kimm Giebels is a Give A Damn member from the very beginning and owner of Ceremonies with Kimm. Both bring knowledge and experience, new impetus and fresh ideas. With their time and effort they want to take Give A Damn further.
Frank’s wish is to make the world a bit more beautiful. He does this in his daily work and in his new role as director of Give A Damn. Frank has become a member and joined the board since January 1, 2021. Frank is motivated to give together and join forces. Because you can mean more to others this way! And because you can share experiences and learn from each other. Frank has a lot of respect and admiration for people who often fight for equal rights (and a normal life) for LGBTQIA+ people under difficult circumstances. Frank knows the charity sector well and has worked for De Regenboog Groep and Doctors Without Borders, among others. He is also the author of the ‘Large Gift Guide’ for philanthropists and charities that want to better understand big donors. Kimm has been actively involved as a member for five years. Initially, she was stimulated by the idea of jointly building an innovative generous donor network for and by LGBTQIA+ people. Contact with LGBTQIA+ organizations around the world soon came to the fore. She gained unprecedented admiration for the people behind the organizations. What resilience, perseverance and creativity in dire situations! When new board members were needed, she responded immediately. She wants to use her creativity, writing talent and video maker skills to give Give A Damn more members. With her structure, clarity, empathy and enthusiasm, she hopes to be a good addition to the board.
