Volunteer Profile: Stewart Chapin

Ready and Willing to Guide Potential Clients Stew is in his second year on the CCT Board heading up the Client Development group. He and his team are responsible for client outreach and assisting potential clients in the grant application process. When applications are submitted in August and September, he will be leading the difficult task of client evaluation and selection. When thinking about CCT clients, Stew feels that he “knew them when their projects were, in many cases, just rough ideas. Following the review and refining process, when client finalists were presented, the client development team hoped that CCT volunteers would feel just as jazzed about them. Months later, after project completion, the ‘graduating’ clients are at last ready to put counsel into action. And we’re ready to start all over again with next year’s class!”  Please let Stew know if there is a Boston-area nonprofit you would like to refer to CCT or if you represent a nonprofit interested in applying for a CCT project!

During the most recent project cycle, along with his client development role, Stew sponsored the Just-A-Start project. For several years, he had also been involved on the client development committee, an experience that helped him decidethat he really wanted to devote more time to the client relationship aspect of CCT.
