EP 20: Kathryn Engelhardt Cronk - Founder & CEO at MissionBox

In episode 20 of The Charity Charge Show, Stephen Garten chats with Kathryn Engelhardt Cronk, Founder & CEO at MissionBox.

Kathryn has over 25 years in the nonprofit service arena. First, as a direct service provider with adults suffering from mental illness and later as an executive director of nonprofits in the areas of substance abuse treatment, child abuse prevention and grief and loss support. She has also served as VP of Community Impact for United Way and developed the first 211 for Central Texas.

After seeing a critical nonprofit need for service and impact reporting technology, Kathryn founded Community TechKnowledge (CTK). In that role as CEO and co-designer of CTK software and services, she worked to provide nonprofits with tools that build capacity, prove the impact of their efforts and support mission success.

In 2015, CTK was sold to Vista Equity Partners, which merged CTK with Social Solutions Global.

After CTK, Kathryn founded Mission Box.

MissionBox recognizes that nonprofit work is critical to the well-being of us all, everywhere around the globe. MissionBox founders, staff, board members and advisers have deep and long experience in working in, and serving, nonprofits of all types and sizes, over the last 30 years.
