Carol formalized her consulting business in 2014 with Carol Bornstein Consulting, LLC. She currently serves nonprofit clients in Houston and San Antonio, Texas. Carol’s firm specializes in private and corporate foundation grant writing and prospect research, coaching in funder cultivation, and grants calendar management services.


Carol earned a bachelor's degree in agricultural economics from the University of Wisconsin and a master's in public administration from the University of Central Florida. She holds a Grant Professional Certification (GPC) credential and is the immediate past president of the Southeast Texas Chapter of the Grant Professionals Association. Carol serves as a volunteer Chapter Support Liaison on a national level for the Grant Professionals Association and volunteers with the scholarship review committee for the Grant Professionals Foundation. She is also a member of the Rotary Club of Asheville.


In her spare time, Carol enjoys reading, hiking, and traveling. Over the last year, she has been to South Korea, Japan, and the Galapagos Islands. While Carol was proud to call Houston home for 27 years, she and her husband Gene now reside in Asheville, North Carolina.
