Matt George

CEO, Children’s Home Association of Illinois

Matt George is a Peoria, Illinois-based writer, speaker and CEO of the Children’s Home Association of Illinois. Kevin Harrington who invented the infomercial and was the original Shark on Shark Tank says Matt George’s new book "Non Profit Gameplan" is a game changer and he calls Matt the "NonProfit CEO of our time."

Matt truly believes that all agencies and non profits need to work together to improve our community.

"If we continue as a sector to take a selfish siloed approach, the people of our community will be the ones who suffer more."

In addition to his work at Children’s Home, Matt helps raise funds for many local nonprofits, including Neighborhood House, The Hult Center for Healthy Living, Crimestoppers, CASA, and more.

When he’s not working to strengthen his community, Matt and his wife Laura enjoy spending time with their five children.
