Donor Travel Consultant
Philanthropy without Borders
Caliopy Glaros has helped organizations worldwide transform their donor engagement strategies into catalysts for positive social change. As a donor travel consultant for Philanthropy without Borders, she works with organizations to create travel experiences that bring donors in direct contact with the programs they support. After seeing many nonprofits struggle with power dynamics and exploitative elements often inherent in donor trips, she developed strategies and best practices for incorporating empathy into each journey. Caliopy brings an intercultural approach to her fundraising tools and trainings, helping people communicate more effectively across differences. Her work is informed by a decade of on-the-ground experience in over thirty countries, as well as facilitating programs in more than fifty nations on five continents. Caliopy is a consultant by profession, anthropologist by training, and Chair of Inclusion Diversity Equity Access Committee of the Oregon Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
