Executives in Action (EIA) was founded by Chris and Ashlee Kleinert in partnership with Entrepreneurs for North Texas (EFNT) and the Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) in 2009. Together, they sought to address a growing need in the nonprofit community for operational support and organization development. By matching skilled executives with area nonprofits, EIA changed the face of volunteer engagement and impact in North Texas.
Over the last 7 years, EIA has worked with more than 270 nonprofits, unleashing $5.3M in human resource capital across the Metroplex, but continued to receive volumes of nonprofit and volunteer requests that could not be met. EIA partnered with the innovative Catchafire to scale the number of volunteers and nonprofits that can be matched. Powered by a revolutionary technology, North Texas nonprofits now have the opportunity to engage professionals to help them accomplish everything their organization needs through a volunteer base devoted to meeting their mission and expanding their impact.
