Momentive/SurveyMonkey CEO Zander Lurie & philanthropic entrepreneur Leah Bernthal
In 2001, childhood friends Zander and Leah had an innovative vision for how to serve kids affected by serious illness inside OR outside of children’s hospitals.
CoachArt was founded to match kids affected by serious illness with volunteers who can teach them arts or athletics skills.
Today, innovative leaders from top companies are driving the mission forward:
CoachArt Executive Director Greg Harrell-Edge and Associate Executive Director Molly Dirr
Since 2015, the organization has been led by Greg and Molly, who have been privileged to oversee an incredible team with a passion for innovation and growth.
The centerpiece of our model and growth is our award-winning CoachArt Connect app:
Create a transformative arts and athletics community for families impacted by childhood chronic illness.
Kids with serious illnesses are often isolated at home and need more support and accommodations to try out different activities.
Generous people using breakthrough solutions can change the world at scale!
We believe a donation is an investment in making the world a better place. Our team’s job is to “return” impact that is effective and transparent.
Our Executive Director Greg tells the CoachArt story in interviews and speaking engagements as an example of a new “wave of impact innovation.”
