“We are delighted and honored that Bob will be joining Changing Our World as Vice Chairman. He is a true leader in the sector.” said Michael Hoffman, Chairman and CEO of Changing Our World, Inc.
“I am looking forward to expanding the national reach of Changing Our World in a changed philanthropic environment” said Mr. Carter. “This is a critical and, in some ways, problematic time for the not for profit sector and today’s solutions have to reflect the new environment.”

In addition to his client work, Carter has been a major leader in the sector. He has just served a three-year term as an Educational Partner on the Industry Advisory Council for the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). Additionally, Carter was appointed to the International Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Board of Directors Executive Committee, served on its Governance Task Force, and chaired the Industry Partners Council for AFP.
