AFC is a professional oasis of hard-working and genuinely kind team members. It’s no surprise that our partners tend to fit that description as well. Combined, this makes for an extremely enjoyable and rewarding
Cindy Popol | Operations Associate
I joined Advisors for Change in 2018. Previous to my leap to Advisors for Change, I worked for 10 years as a public school counselor. Much like nonprofit work, we carefully and strategically stretched our limited resources to maximize our support of the personal, social and emotional health of our students and families, many of whom came from under-served communities.
I am frequently awed by the scope and depth of the valuable work our partner organizations perform in our communities and around the world. As an AFC team member, my work to improve our partners’ financial management practices is a “behind the scenes” way to support their worthy missions.
My work with our partners is extremely useful, in that I work on a wide range of tasks that are custom designed to meet the unique needs of our partner organizations.
AFC is unique in its drive to help its partners become independent nonprofit financial systems managers. Our work is special in the personal care taken to make sure a job is not just “done” but “extremely well done”.
When I'm not advising for change I'm with my family. I can often be found cheering on one of our three teenage daughters at a swim meet, softball game, horse show or musical theater performance. I also love to cook and play tennis.
