Do not be interested only in your own life but be interested in the lives of others.  Philippians 2:4

We established the foundation in 2017 with the belief that our family is strongest when we work together to help others.  Creating the foundation has provided us structure and purpose to increase our collective impact.  As our parents did before us, we seek to become change-makers doing our part to make a difference. 


We also believe that foundations have a responsibility to do their own research and due diligence, assuming this role with both intelligence and integrity.  We take this responsibility seriously and strive to better understand the challenges facing North Texas as we partner with others to identify and support solutions. 


Hannah Rabalais

Hannah first met Ashlee and Chris in 2015 and was impressed by their commitment to the vulnerable and exploited in our community, but even more so by their quiet, servant led leadership. “Ashlee and Chris make such an impact with their philanthropy and by involving their family, the good they do will continue to expand and grow.” Hannah’s own path began when her passion for working with women was ignited during a mission trip to India in 2014. There she saw first-hand the dire need for ways for women to provide for themselves and their families. From there, she sought out opportunities to work with women in her own community of Dallas. Hannah switched careers and joined a social enterprise employing women who have been previously trafficked. Working alongside those women, Hannah recognized the significant impact restoring dignity and investing in these women had on the women, their families, the community and herself. Joining the Kleinert Foundation, enabled Hannah to expand her own servant leadership and philanthropic experiences, while continuing to fulfill her passion. “Being a part of the Kleinert Foundation is a true gift. I love working with the board members, but the most exciting part of the work is the chance to make a difference in the lives of women and girls, and those who are the most vulnerable in our community."
