Chris Britt is the founder & CEO of Chime, the leader in U.S. challenger banking that helps members avoid fees, save money automatically, and lead healthier financial lives. From 2007-2012, Chris was Chief Product Officer and SVP, Corporate Development at Green Dot. Chris was also a senior product leader at Visa and one of the first executives at ComScore. He’s a Board Member of CoachArt.org, a non-profit that connects chronically ill kids and their siblings with free lessons in the arts and athletics.

Britt joined the CoachArt board in 2009 before we even launched our Bay Area office. He then became one of our founding Bay Area board members when we expanded our services to the region in 2011. He attends program events regularly with his family, and his involvement in our leadership and fundraising have contributed greatly to our success.

The CoachArt Children’s Benefit honors individuals for exceptional professional success and personal humanitarianism. Our 2019 CoachArt Children’s Benefit on May 16th in San Francisco will honor Chris Britt as this year’s Heart and Humanity Champion!

“Chris Britt exemplifies the vision, dedication, and compassion of our board members,” said CoachArt Executive Director Greg Harrell-Edge. “Our community is grateful to him for all he’s done to build CoachArt’s presence in the Bay Area and advance our mission.”

“Twenty-five percent of U.S. children have a chronic health problem, and our hope with CoachArt is to reach more of these children with arts and athletic programming that can make a meaningful difference in their everyday lives,” said Chris Britt. “It’s been incredible to see the growth of CoachArt and the impact we’re having on our community of children and their families. The future is bright at CoachArt.”

The annual CoachArt Children’s Benefit brings the Bay Area community together for an inspiring evening celebrating the best of CoachArt’s past year while raising funds for the future. Our program will feature entertainment by CoachArt kids and inspiring stories from the past year.
