Mike Kiedrowski has served the non-profit industry for 28 years in Catholic schools, parishes, and health care and believes strongly in service to community. Most recently, as the Director of Major and Planned Giving, he lead the Trinity Catholic Schools in Dickinson, ND in a $21 million capital campaign to rebuild their school, which was partially destroyed by fire in 2014. Before the Trinity assignment Mike worked for the Diocese of Bismarck as the Director of Planned Giving where he lead a team of clergy and lay people in restructuring the diocese’s foundation which increased its assets by 70% in one year.

Mike has a lot of energy when presented with an opportunity to educate parish boards, volunteers, and donor prospects on the importance of major gifts and planned gifts. Many comment of Mike’s gift of empathy when managing volunteers and donor prospects. He is very familiar with the parish work environment and works cordially with parish staff during parish capital campaigns.

He earned a Master Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Mary, Bismarck, ND when he was the CEO and Superintendent with the Trinity Catholic Schools. During his time as administrator, a new strategic plan was put into place that incorporated the largest administration and governance change in the 104-year history of the schools. This plan created an excellent infrastructure for growth and efficiency.

Mike’s wife Kathy and he have four grown children and three grandchildren. In 2017 the Kiedrowski Family was selected the North Dakota Knights of Columbus Family of the Year. Mike enjoys working with Kathy in their vegetable and flower gardens at their home, biking, hunting with his two sons, supporting their favorite college and professional football teams, and spending time with family, especially with their grandchildren.
