Caliopy Glaros helps organizations transform their donor engagement strategies into catalysts for positive social change. As a consultant for Philanthropy without Borders, she works with organizations to create impactful virtual and in-person opportunities for donors to connect directly to the programs they support.
After years of seeing nonprofits struggle with power dynamics and exploitative elements often inherent in site-visits and mass-market communications, she developed tools and strategies to help them curate better experiences and design communications that build empathy and intercultural competence in their supporters. In addition to her extensive research, writing, and speaking, she provides group training, individual coaching, and project consulting on mass-market communications, one-on-one stewardship, events, site-visits, tours, and travel programs.
Caliopy has an academic background in Anthropology and Adult Learning, is a certified trainer in Intercultural Communication, and the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access (IDEA) Chair of the Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
