Amy Klein,
Executive Director

Amy, a California native and UCLA graduate, has broad nonprofit and volunteer experience. Having begun her career in business administration and as an avid volunteer, she has focused her recent work in the nonprofit development and fundraising fields.

In her current role as executive director of VolunteerConnect, Amy has successfully launched the skills-based volunteer movement in New Jersey. This includes both short-term impact projects and nonprofit board training for individuals and corporations. Amy also advises nonprofit leaders on the practice of using pro bono support to address critical budget issues, by crossing the strategic needs of nonprofits with available professional expertise. She also works directly with corporations to provide added value services to their corporate social responsibility platforms to enhance their community connections and improve employee engagement.

Amy is on the advisory board of RSVP of Mercer County and sits on committees with the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce and Princeton Community Works. She was recently honored as the “Community Leader of the Year” by the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce, and plans to use this platform to continue to raise awareness of nonprofit needs.

When she’s not advocating volunteerism, she can be found with her family, reading Sherlock Holmes books, ushering at McCarter Theatre or playing with her adored chocolate Labrador.
