During our May Board of Directors meeting, San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley presented outgoing board member Carol Whitfield with a commendation for her service to Caminar.
Supervisor Horsley thanked Carol for the six years she served as a member of the Caminar Board of Directors, during which time she helped the organization increase in size by nearly 50 percent.
Carol’s energy targeting growth in fundraising and merger opportunities was unmatched, and her successful business career helped guide Caminar to become more efficient in its operations and marketing efforts. Her involvement with Caminar’s annual fundraising event, In Concert With Caminar, has resulted in over $1.4 million dollars raised for the organization. She guided and led the expansion of board member recruitment, attracting prominent community leaders, who expanded the organization’s fundraising capacity and network. As well, Carol worked tirelessly to create the merger opportunity with Family and Children Services of Silicon Valley.
We appreciate Supervisor Horsley’s recognition of Carol for her outstanding service to Caminar and commitment to help those in San Mateo County. We, too, are tremendously grateful for Carol’s unwavering support of Caminar. We are thrilled she will remain actively involved in Caminar as part of our Advisory Committee.
