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, her recent work has been extensively in the nonprofit development and fundraising fields.

She currently is the executive director of VolunteerConnect and has successfully launched the skills-based volunteer movement in New Jersey, which includes short-term impact projects and nonprofit board training for individuals and corporations. Amy 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 has recently been awarded the “Community Leader of the Year” award 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, Amy can always be found with her family, reading Sherlock Holmes books, ushering at McCarter Theatre or playing with her adored chocolate Labrador.
