Cindy Lauren - Principal - Lauren // Associates

Cindy has a strong educational background and a thorough immersion into non profit organizations. By focusing on innovative “bootstrapped” solutions, Cindy has enjoyed much success in the arena of non profit management.

By starting as a volunteer, she has seen the needs and goals of an organization from bottom to top. Donating her time at events supporting various cancer charities including UCLA and USC, taught Cindy what it takes to organize and truly make change in a community:

By working my way up through the system, I am aware of the many challenges
that currently face non profits: excessive reporting requirements, the dynamics
of boards and volunteer leaders, the constant requirement to raise funds and
support and the many needs of the nonprofit communities.

With a deep understanding of these challenges, Cindy develops novel ways to address the many simultaneous demands of this work, and further more, how to make it enjoyable.

From local, city-based organizations, to international medical relief organizations, fiscal responsibility, membership, identity, outreach, advocacy, and dynamic survival have been the hallmarks of her work.

Cindy has set into motion an enduring legacy of accomplishment with both large and
small non profit organizations, all working toward community involvement and improvement.
