Kelly Cramer

Manager, Foundation Partnerships

Kelly Cramer
Kelly Cramer is an animal lover and grant writer, in that order. As the manager of foundation partnerships at Best Friends Animal Society, she has found a way to marry these personas. Kelly develops and implements grant-seeking strategy for Best Friends, executing all stages of grants management, from research and writing to relationship development and stewardship. In a previous life, Kelly worked as a grant writer for Special Olympics Kentucky and as a major gifts officer at a monastery.

She holds degrees in education and nonprofit management from Indiana University-Bloomington. Kelly lives near Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband and three dogs, and has been a fan of Best Friends since she adopted her first dog from a rescue group when she was in college (Kelly, not the dog). In her spare time, Kelly enjoys vegan cooking, volunteering to help animals, watching crime shows, and renovating her home.
