Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog includes nonprofit topics of interest to me personally, discussions about personal experiences (including advice and possible solutions), nonprofit trends to be watching, and a few precautions.
I began Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog in 2011 after moving from Corpus Christi, Texas after ten years of productive work in South Texas, to San Antonio. During that “down time,” I began reviewing my lifetime of professional nonprofit work, and I began writing down and sharing my experiences and advice. The encouragement to blog came from NTEN: Nonprofit Technology Network, and during that time, I also began learning how to use social media platforms in earnest. That proved to be a smart investment!
There are no other authors nor guest authors. I receive fairly regular requests to write articles for Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog, but there are no other authors at this time. Having said that, I do reference discussions by others that I believe might be helpful. I also believe giving credit where credit is due.
Included in Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog In Brief
- In-depth “primary” articles and portfolios accessible from the main menu bar at the top of the page.
- Occasional posts on more narrowly-focused and recent topics, which you will find by looking in the margin under, “Carolyn’s Posts.” Included is a searchable archive of articles going back to 2013.
- See the special sections in the drop down menu, “A Brief Account” and “Development as a Profession.” The first includes stories about my fundraising in Texas with well known personalities, and the second focuses on experiences and issues relating to young and/or new fundraisers.
I update my blog’s landing page now and again to include new content and imagery, so check back for updates. A few “post” links have also been added to the main menu of primary articles.
Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog is composed and managed entirely by me free of charge as a public service.

Keep in Mind
Because each nonprofit organization is unique – as is each nonprofit professional – you should tailor your 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.
