INDIANAPOLIS — Pam Norman has been named chief philanthropy officer of Kiwanis International and will oversee the Kiwanis Children’s Fund while maintaining her oversight of corporate relations. The global volunteer organization dedicated to helping children around the world is located in Indianapolis.  

“As Kiwanis shifts toward inviting a larger corporate partnership role in support of its various local and global community support, Pam is the right candidate to oversee this change,” said Stan Soderstrom, executive director of Kiwanis International. “Our partnership with UNICEF has succeeded in raising and contributing millions of dollars to support global health causes, and we anticipate our participation as a global contributor and leader will continue to increase in the coming years.”

Norman most recently served as senior director of corporate relations for Kiwanis where she directed all facets of corporate and partnership initiatives, including strategic planning, corporate giving, retail operations, partner marketing and more. She began her career with Kiwanis serving in a programmatic role with The Eliminate Project, a joint effort of Kiwanis and UNICEF to rid the world of maternal and neonatal tetanus.  

“The Kiwanis Children’s Fund plays an integral role in Kiwanis’ mission of serving the children of the world,” Norman said. “I look forward to helping grow the Children's Fund so we reach even more children in local communities and around the world through our global health initiatives.”

Before joining Kiwanis International, Norman was executive director of Indiana INTERNnet and Ambassadors for Children, both Indiana-based nonprofits. As a 20-year nonprofit executive, Norman has experience in collaborative innovation and relationship building to move organizations forward.

Norman holds a bachelor of liberal arts degree from Butler University and is a member of Kappa Alpha Theta, Butler Alumni Association and St. Aphonsus Liguori Catholic Church.

She is a charter member of the Kiwanis Club of Zionsville. She and her husband, Brian, reside in Zionsville. They have two adult children who live in Indiana and Arizona.
