My name is Linda Brown Rivelis. I’m the President at Campaign Consultation, Inc.
I am pleased, upon the invitation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and in cooperation with the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, to join a delegation of fundraising professionals in China from December 11th – 22nd.
Sponsored by President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s People to People International, I’ll be presenting, exchanging information and exploring ideas related to volunteerism and philanthropy in Hong Kong and Beijing.
Just before I join up with the delegation, I’ll be in Taipei where I’ve been asked to deliver a fundraising presentation to faculty and students at National Tsing Hua University (NTHU).
I think that China hosting this fundraising delegation in the same year of the earthquake tragedy where an unprecedented number of Chinese citizens volunteered and “opened their wallets” to survivors is most timely.
Stay tuned to information snippets and tactile points of what I find interesting during this learning adventure.
Best year-end wishes too!
