Best And Hardest-Working Man In The Nonprofit Business

Lonny Stern

In a nonprofit world where everyone is working hard to raise money for each worthy cause, one crusader is indefatigable and ubiquitous. The go-to guy at Project Transitions (a nonprofit that provides hospice, housing, and supportive care for people living with HIV/AIDS in Central Texas), Stern not only publicizes dozens of benefits each year, he cross-pollinates and does legwork for other organizations. His fingerprints are all over e-mails, press releases, and pleas for volunteers for a variety of charitable organizations. As if that isn't enough (and it is), he never fails to do the simple thing that is so often overlooked: He says thank you. On behalf of the recipients of the kind and compassionate care provided at Project Transitions and other places, thank you, Lonny Stern.
