Advocating for Children's Health: A Nonprofit Leader's Impressive Track Record

When it comes to advocating for children’s health and wellness, Andrew Stein is a name that immediately comes to mind. Stein has spent the last seven years serving as the executive director of City Year Detroit, a nonprofit organization that focuses on education and mentorship for young adults in schools. During this time, he also served as the senior vice president for national advancement at City Year, Inc. Under his leadership, Stein exceeded fundraising targets each year and doubled the organization’s annual revenue.

Stein’s experience in nonprofit leadership is impressive. As the Executive Director of City Year Detroit, he managed the organization’s operations in Michigan and Metro Detroit. He managed a $7 million annual budget and a team of 140 people who worked with 7,000 students in Detroit schools. Stein’s accomplishments include securing over 75 new major gifts ranging from $10,000 to $3,000,000 and increasing unrestricted net assets from a deficit of ($830,000) in FY16 to a surplus of $4,000,000 in FY22.

Moreover, Stein is a true leader in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. He initiated an equity audit that led to important organizational changes, including greater diversity in leadership, adjustments in compensation, new hiring processes, and redefined success metrics that created opportunities for people from all backgrounds to succeed. He also led an effort to diversify the board, tripling the number of women and people of color on the board.

Stein has recently joined the Children’s Foundation as their new President, where he continues his passion for advocating children’s health and wellness. The Children’s Foundation is an organization that works to improve the health and wellness of children in Michigan. With his experience in nonprofit leadership and fundraising, Stein is expected to contribute significantly to the foundation’s efforts. His track record of building public-private partnerships and securing over $15 million in city, state, and federal funds will also be useful in his new role.

In addition to his role at the Children’s Foundation, Stein also serves as a consultant for other US and international City Year sites in areas of turnaround, strategic planning, board development, and fundraising. He is an advocate at the city, state, and federal level, working with the Executive and Legislative branches on education, workforce development, and service policy.

Andrew Stein is a nonprofit leader who dedicated his career to advocating for children’s health and wellness. His passion and commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, combined with his experience in fundraising and nonprofit management, make him a valuable asset to any organization. The Children’s Foundation is fortunate to have him on board, and we can’t wait to see the positive impact he will make on children’s health and wellness in Michigan.
