I've always loved to write and teach. I am proud to say I am an accomplished (and more importantly, published) author, having had twenty-five books published.
I am one of slightly more than 100 professionals worldwide to hold the Advanced Certified Fund Raising Executive designation. In my thirty years as a philanthropic consultant, I have managed capital campaigns, helped hundreds of nonprofit organizations achieve their development goals, and trained more than 40,000 development professionals in Canada, Mexico, Egypt, Bermuda, and most of the fifty states in the US, in addition to leading hundreds of virtual training programs with a world-wide audience.
I am especially proud of my affordable and comprehensive Linda Lysakowski's Nonprofit Courses, which I am adding to all the time!
I am a graduate of Alvernia University and a Master Teacher graduating from AFP’s Faculty Training Academy.
