Carolyn Mugar

When Willie raised over $7 million during the first Farm Aid concert in 1985, he knew he had to find an Executive Director who could handle the task of distributing all that money. He handpicked Carolyn Mugar, an activist for many social issues, including labor, environment, toxics, literacy, and community empowerment. Being half Armenian, Carolyn started a reforestation project in Armenia. In her “spare” time, Carolyn serves on a variety of non-profit boards, and is constantly finding new hobbies. We’re all convinced that Carolyn doesn’t sleep at night – that’s the only way we figure she could manage to do all that she does!
