Executive Director


Greg Harrell-Edge has been CoachArt’s Executive Director since 2016. A second-generation nonprofit executive, his focus in the sector has been on using emerging trends in entrepreneurship to make a bigger and more scalable impact in the world. Under Greg’s leadership, CoachArt created an app called CoachArt Connect for volunteers to match directly with families impacted by chronic illness, based on the 2-sided platform model of Lyft, AirBnB or Match.com. The app reduced the staff time needed to make one match from over 7 hours to under 7 minutes. The design of the app was a finalist for the national 2017 and 2020 TechImpact Innovation award and Greg’s pitch for the platform won both the 2018 Social Venture Partners LA Fast Pitch Innovation Award and the Audience Award. During Greg’s tenure, CoachArt has experienced: a) an 240%+ increase in annual lesson hours; b) a 60%+ increase in annual revenue; c) budget surpluses, totaling more than $400,000+. He oversees CoachArt’s vision to scale free arts and athletics lessons to any child impacted by chronic illness across the country. Greg was formerly the Development Director at Friends of the Urban Forest in San Francisco, and has also previously worked as an organizer for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and as a content creator for ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
