Welcome

My mission is to help organizations, communities, donors and volunteers attain their fundraising, digital communications and public relations goals in the most efficient, thoughtful, high-quality manner possible. I am an independent nonprofit fundraising and communications expert with extensive experience across Texas and beyond.

Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog was launched in 2011. Based on personal interests and experiences, it shares my work in the “trenches” of nonprofit organizations small and large, both the wonderful and the challenging moments. The challenges I discuss are meant to help readers learn that while missteps happen naturally in life, one can recuperate and even thrive once you deal with and move past them. Never say never!

June 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog. To learn how I began blogging, follow the link. To read about my background and experiences, scroll to the lower margin of this website.
