Welcome to Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog

Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog was established in 2011. It is based on personal interests and experiences, and focuses primarily on my work spanning three decades in the nonprofit sector. My aim is to share my experiences working in the “trenches,” including both the wonderful and the challenging moments. The challenging experiences I discuss are meant to help my readers understand that while missteps happen naturally in life, one can recuperate and even thrive once you get past them.

2018 marks my 7th year blogging on WordPress.

The main list of articles may be found by clicking the drop-down menu at the top of this page. I add new materials all the time, including a short story series called, “A Brief Account” (look in the margin), and a series of photo portfolios (click on the menu at the top, then on, “How This Blog Works”).

I am the sole author of Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog. But to be even more helpful, I include links to the websites of many other colleagues in my articles and posts. For information about how this blog was created and the guiding principles under which it operates, follow this link. Thank you for visiting!


Missing something? If you are searching for one of my casual “posts” but are unable to locate it, do two things: 1) check the Primary Articles (drop-down menu at the top of the page), as some posts have been converted to primary articles; and 2) check the widgets in the margins. There you will find Carolyn’s Posts and a searchable archive going back to 2013.

All photographs that appear in the rotating series of “headers” on Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog were taken by me with an iPhone. Questions? Contact me anytime.
