Marian Sprague

Marian Sprague combines a passion for promoting positive change with the deep skills needed for effectiveness. A published author, she has a fine eye as an editor, and has used her critical eye for many of our efforts.  A graduate of Duke University, Marian began her nonprofit career with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts affiliate, Very Special Arts. Over the next decade, she was instrumental in the creation of two Washington, DC-based NGOs: the Foundation for Hospice and Homecare and the Caring Institute. She has also worked for the Heart of America Foundation and Resurge, the first organization to provide free reconstructive surgery for medically under-served children worldwide. An award-winning author, Sprague’s work has been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Power MomsToddler: Real-life Stories of Those Fickle, Irrational, Urgent, Tiny People We Love, the Mercury News, the Palo Alto Weekly, the Santa Clara Weekly, and Who Cares and Caring People magazines. She has also worked as a proofreader for Sunset Magazine and as a technical writer and editor at various Silicon Valley companies.  

Marian’s accomplishments are significant and deserve more than a paragraph. The problem is, we can’t tear her away from all our important projects long enough to get her to write more than this, about herself. Next year… maybe!
