Kimberly Wicoff


Kimberly Wicoff is executive director of the San Francisco Education Fund. She joined the Education Fund in January 2013 and led the organization through a comprehensive change process to clarify its program model, strengthen community and corporate partnerships and grow its donor base to ultimately benefit more students. She’s also overseen the launch of three programs — focused on elementary school literacy and middle school math in the City’s highest-need schools as well as corporate engagement — all of which capitalize on the strength of the Education Fund’s longstanding history of rallying the community in support of public schools. Earlier on her career, Wicoff worked for Strive Together, the San Francisco Mayor’s Office, and Bridgespan Group. As Deputy Director of SF’s Communities of Opportunity Initiative, Wicoff worked with 15 city departments, 10 Foundations and 2,600 families in Bayview Hunters Point and Visitacion Valley to eradicate poverty. She designed and piloted a Resident Assistance Program decreasing the number of families at risk of eviction by over 75% in three months. Originally from San Antonio Texas, Wicoff earned a B.A. in Anthropology from Princeton University and an M.B.A. from Stanford. She lives in San Francisco with her husband.
