Creating strategic partnerships for AZ

Kim Covington

Kim Covington by all measures had a satisfying and successful career, with 30 years in television news and a long list of awards for her reporting and community service. But a near fatal accident in the news van motivated her to make a momentous change of direction in her professional life.

The change was not due to her physical wounds, frightening as they were. In her words, “After I woke up from severe injuries and a traumatic concussion, I was never more awake to what God was calling me to do.”

That led her to step down from the broadcast industry to partner with the Arizona Community Foundation, where she now serves as Vice President, Community Initiatives. Kim works with diverse communities across the state, overseeing ACF projects including Latinos Unidos, the Black Philanthropy Initiative and several giving circles.
