About Our Thought Partner
Mary Beth Harrington
For over 30 years, Mary Beth Harrington has been one of the nonprofit sectors most passionate supporters. Her career path is unique, as she has not focused on one sector. Rather, she has worked with all nonprofits from Aids to Zoos and everything in between; usually providing training most notably as Director of Curriculum & Development at the San Antonio Area Foundation, Director of Agency Relations at the Volunteer Center of North Texas, and as Director of Community Outreach at the Texas Association of Nonprofit Organizations (TANO).
Harrington’s presentations are based on the knowledge she has gained working with hundreds of nonprofits as well as her own experiences as Executive Director at the Austin Public Library Foundation, Volunteer Coordinator at the Dallas Public Library, member of numerous nonprofit boards and Director of Marketing at BloodCare (now Carter BloodCare) where her nonprofit career began.
A passionate expert for the nonprofit sector, Harrington crisscrosses the country articulating issues facing our nonprofit community; urging nonprofits to welcome new leadership, collaborate to be more effective, and develop their boards to be more sustainable. A much sought-after speaker, her presentations are characterized as energetic, thought provoking and content rich. (So hang onto your seats!)
Harrington was born and raised in Dallas but recently moved to the Pacific Northwest as she got tired of the hot sunny days in Texas! When not speaking on behalf of nonprofits, Harrington spends time with her husband Rick, her grown children Kaylee and Chris as well as her “puppies” Rugby Roo and Truly Scrumptious (photos available upon request!)
