Chuck Sandstrom Enterprises, Inc. offers the services of Dr. Chuck Sandstrom, CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive), for motivational presentations that move individuals and organizations to new levels of income and effectiveness.
Dr. Sandstrom was the victim of a random, violent assault in June of 2009 and, though still physically and cognitively impaired, continues to inspire audiences with powerful messages drawn from his personal story of recovery and forgiveness, a story that has been closely followed by the Akron Beacon Journal.
Sandstrom holds a doctorate in Organizational Leadership from the University of Pittsburgh with over thirty years of experience as a development executive and consultant.
He was awarded a renewal of professionally respected CFRE (Certified Fund-raising Executive) credential on the strength of fundraising and speaking activities post-injury in May 2010. This credential was earned on the basis of proven executive leadership in organizational and fund development, demonstrated results in growth endeavors and capital campaigns, and millions of dollars raised.
