About This Program

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.

Catchafire is the largest, online skills-based volunteer platform, providing social mission organizations with support in marketing and communications, web development, operations, strategy and more. With a community of over 37,000 talented professionals, Catchafire's platform has the power to recreate the way we give and how we change the world.

“A few ‘clicks’ and within 10-minutes of creating my profile, I was introduced to my first project. Within 48 hours of my application, I was on my way to collaborate with a wonderful community and directly impact the lives of children in India. Where else could I have found such an efficient, convenient and rewarding volunteer experience?”

“I cannot build a house, cannot fix a toy, and I surely cannot tutor kids to do well on the SATs. That said, I know how to put together a lean and mean budget. That’s why I like Catchafire.”

“I like to know that beyond my full-time job, I can use and improve my professional skills while helping others. I also think that the donation of your time and skills is more meaningful and rewarding than giving money. The Catchafire projects have truly been mutually beneficial”
