Kimberly Sellars-Bates Founder & President
Kimberly Sellars-Bates is a native Atlantan and a product of the Atlanta Public and Fulton County school systems. She attended Alabama State University where she was an active student in the band, clubs, radio station and social and civic organizations. Upon graduating from ASU with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, she returned to her hometown and began working at Spelman College. While there, Mrs. Sellars Bates was introduced to the world of Resource Development. She worked full time but soon began getting requests from individuals and organizations to establish them as a nonprofit and secure grants. After discussing her next move with her husband, together, they decided that Kimberly should try working for herself. Thus, Kimberly founded her company, KSTB Enterprises in 2007.
KSTB has grown tremendously from her humble beginnings at Kimberly’s dining room table. The firm now has offices in four states and is currently responsible for over $20 million in grants and contracts. The firm also has a 100% success rate in securing nonprofit status. Kimberly provides consulting services and conducts seminars, trainings and nonprofit coaching all over the United States.
Kimberly is certified by Neighbor Works America, a national nonprofit organization created by Congress to provide financial support, technical assistance, and training for community-based revitalization efforts.
She works tirelessly in her community and is a dedicated and active member in many community organizations including: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (TEO Chapter); Order of the Easter Star (Peace Chapter #146); 100 Black Women (NW Georgia Chapter); Metro Atlanta Alabama State University Alumni Chapter; and Westlake High School.

Employee Handbook (HR Compliance Consultation)
Small nonprofits may not need one but if you have over two employees, having an employee handbook is a good idea. Having a written employee handbook ensures everyone in the organization has received and is operating from the same information. This can eliminate any dispute as to whether basic employment information was communicated. To this end, all employees should be asked to acknowledge in writing their receipt of the handbook at the time they are hired and at any time the handbook is modified.
Listed below are suggested items to be included:
An introduction including the organization’s mission, history and philosophies.
Rules pertaining to work schedules and hours and other details of attendance including types of excused absences and the process for notification of absences or tardiness.
Pay and performance including a description of how salaries and any other compensation are determined and adjusted as well as the role and specifics of any performance management processes.
A description of benefits including health and any other employer-provided insurance, paid time off, unpaid leaves and 403(b) or other retirement provisions. The organization’s substance abuse policy.
