Kate Hearne is a managing partner and treasurer of moss+ross. She leads corporate services and business development, tailoring the moss+ross suite of services to fit the unique needs of each client. Prior to joining moss+ross in 2009, Kate was a Senior Campaign Manager at Coxe Curry & Associates in Atlanta.

Kate’s fundraising counsel strengths include both the planning and execution of capital and endowment campaigns from concept to completion. In a planning capacity, this includes feasibility studies, volunteer recruitment and management, creation and production of campaign materials, prospecting, and strategic counsel for lead gifts. During campaigns, this includes prospect strategy, coordinating volunteer committees and activities, grant proposal submission, events, and other activities to drive the campaign forward. She is also a member of our search services team.

Kate lives in Atlanta and stays on her toes with three school-age children, serving in various volunteer roles at their schools and on her church grantmaking committee. She and her husband Sanders are both graduates of Davidson College and dream of returning to North Carolina one day.

Fun fact: Kate was the first moss+ross team member!
