First Lady of Philanthropy  

"There is only one name when it comes to fundraising - Carolyn Farb. In fact, if you look up fundraising in Webster's, you'll find her name as the ultimate definition! She is the 'queen' of them all; she's tireless, dedicated, glamorous, effervescent, and the word "no" just doesn't exist in her vocabulary. For Carolyn, fundraising is more a calling than a goal. In this book, you'll find everything (and I mean everything) you ever wanted to know about fundraising. She will make you feel Rich and Famous with her generosity of spirit."
- Robin Leach, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

Carolyn Farb

Houston's premier volunteer fundraiser and event creator, Carolyn Farb, exemplifies the essence of public service and philanthropy. She is a native Texan whose passion shines not only throughout the Lone Star State, but internationally. No one can equal her passion for embracing a cause, living it, breathing it, nurturing it and championing it until others become true believers as well.

Ms. Farb's fundraising style, spirit and successes have set national standards with each succeeding project with which she is involved, and it is rare to find an individual who won't be receptive to her causes. One secret of her success is her total commitment and concentration, giving 200 percent of herself, her time and her considerable expertise. Her tireless devotion to charitable fundraising is embraced with each new project.

From medical research, children's charities, and women's issues to the arts, education, and the environment, Carolyn's skill as a volunteer fundraiser for more than 100 worthwhile nonprofit organizations has been fine-tuned to equal that of the best professional fundraisers in the world.

She is committed to volunteerism for the greater good. The key to her success is in her dynamic vision, her intensity of purpose and her total commitment to her causes. Her hands-on planning and execution of every detail for a project serve as a role model for all volunteers. Her life exemplifies public service and is an example of the power of one individual's commitments to a cause.

Carolyn Farb personifies the perfect volunteer and the meaning of a true philanthropist.
