Mrs Kimberly Downes is the Director of Community Relations. She works alongside a Community Relations Team and members of the Ruyton community, where she oversees communications, alumnae relations, archives, Ruyton community support groups, fundraising, marketing and the work of the Ruyton Foundation.
‘Building a culture of philanthropy is where my passion lies. The connection students, parents and alumnae feel towards their school is something that should be celebrated, to make our community here at Ruyton as strong as possible.’
After a career of mainly consulting for 24 years with not for profits in the areas of fundraising, strategy and marketing, Kim joined the team at Ruyton in 2017. In her free time Kim loves to travel, bake, study Italian, practise yoga and spend time with her family.
