Blog Organization, History & More

Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog includes nonprofit topics of interest to me personally, personal experiences (and solutions), nonprofit trends to be watching, and a few precautions.

I began Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog in 2011 during the economic downturn when living in San Antonio, Texas. It has become the documentation of a lifetime of professional work in the nonprofit sector. There are no other authors nor guest authors. I receive fairly regular requests to write articles for Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog, and I apologize, but there are no other authors at this time.

Included in Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog

  1. In-depth “primary” articles and portfolios accessible from the main menu bar at the top of the page.
  2. Occasional posts on more narrowly-focused topics, which you will find by looking at the bottom of the page under, “Carolyn’s Posts.” Included is a searchable archive of articles going back to 2013.
  3. “A Brief Account,” articles that are a bit more casual recounting personal experiences in fundraising, some with noted philanthropists, business and civic leaders, which you will find in the margin.

I update my blog’s landing page now and again to include new content and imagery, so check back for updates. After publishing articles, I often update them so they remain fresh and current for my visitors from some 200 countries. In February, 2019 I began merging my professional work website with Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog. You will find my work pages in the margin in a separate menu.

Keep in Mind

Because each nonprofit organization is unique, you should tailor your fundraising activities accordingly. I stand by the information I convey, but you must always consider the context in which you are operating before applying new concepts.

Looking for my social links? There are a few primary platforms posted on Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog at the bottom of the page. A more comprehensive listing may be found on Carolyn Online, which is accessible via the drop down menu at the top of the page.

Best wishes for your fundraising success!
