Kate Wilson joined the Basilica staff in July 2017 as a Research Advancement Coordinator. In this role, she collaborates with other development staff members to implement strategies around campaigns, appeals, and the overall management of prospects and donors. A native Hoosier, she became a Minnesota transplant when she attended St. Olaf College to study English Literature. She quickly decided the Land of 10,000 Lakes was the place for her and has been here ever since. Kate has spent her entire career in nonprofit development, most recently as a prospect researcher for her alma mater. She is passionate about philanthropy and using data to inform fundraising practices. Her favorite pastimes include reading, yoga, and exploring new cities with her trusty camera in hand.
