Kalman Stein

Kalman Stein has been President and CEO of EarthShare since its inception in 1989. During that time EarthShare and its affiliates have raised more than $300 million in pledges; the number of benefiting national member charities has risen from 18 to 71; and the organization has grown to include 16 affiliates and chapters representing nearly 600 environmental and conservation nonprofits in 24 states. Under Mr. Stein's leadership EarthShare has partnered with dozens of major corporations and government employers to care for our natural resources through employee engagement and giving, enabling more than 8 million people nationwide to easily contribute to missions that impact all of us.

EarthShare also manages several large workplace giving campaigns in the public sector, including the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) of the National Capital Area, the world’s largest workplace giving drive with more than $51 million in annual pledges. Mr. Stein was the first appointee to the federal CFC50 Commission that made recommendations to the federal government for modernizing the CFC, and he is a founder and current chair of the Combined Federal Campaign Foundation.

Mr. Stein is also a co-founder of the Charities@Work coalition of fundraising federations and serves on its executive committee. He holds a B.A. and M.B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
