Our Story

Doctor Kirk Adams has spent his professional career diligently driving the inclusion of people who are blind throughout society. A long white cane user since age six, he attended the Oregon State School for the Blind, and attribute the blindness skills and strong sense of internal agency gained there for much of his success in life. Doctor Adams entered the nonprofit sector through fundraising.

His first nonprofit job was as a development officer for the Seattle Public Library Foundation, raising money for the statewide National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS). During that time, he earned a Master’s degree in Not-For-Profit Leadership from Seattle University, and earned the Certified Fundraising Executive credential from the Association of Fundraising professionals.

Doctor Adams was originally hired by the Seattle Lighthouse to run a comprehensive fundraising program and a supporting Foundation and fundraising board. Moving into the CEO roles at the Lighthouse and American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), he continuously developed his network of relationships with others interested in the inclusion of people with disabilities. As a consultant today, Doctor Adams is excited about putting his skills, experience, and networks to good use, supporting innovative, impactful projects.
