The internal audience can sometimes be the most challenging of all for communications professionals. It’s one that disguises itself as the “low-hanging fruit,” yet one that is often more high maintenance than a parent in an episode of “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Join Food Bank of Lincoln ‘s Communications Director Michaella Kumke for this presentation to hear a few tips, tricks, and ideas she’s collected to enhance nonprofit internal communications efforts.


Michaella  has a passion for nonprofit communications and human services. In early 2015, she joined the amazing team at the Food Bank of Lincoln where she works as the communications director. Through a variety of marketing channels, Michaella brings attention to food insecurity in Southeast Nebraska.

Since graduating from UNL in 2003, Michaella has worked in the nonprofit sector as a communications and marketing professional. She has previous work experience with some of Lincoln’s best-known and beloved nonprofit organizations, including NET, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, and Lincoln Children’s Museum.

Michaella proudly volunteers as a member of the Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln board of directors and is a mentor for College of Journalism and Mass Communications students at UNL.
