Atlanta, Georgia – On November 16, 2012, Richmont Graduate University’s Director of Grants, Christianna Luy, was named as the 2013 Chamberlain Scholar for the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Greater Atlanta. As this year’s scholar, Luy will receive free admission to the Association of Fundraising Professionals International conference in San Diego, California in April 2013 as well as $1,000 in chapter support to be used toward conference travel and lodging expenses.
As a current Executive Master’s student in the School of Philanthropy at Indiana University-Purdue University, Luy is looking forward to expanding her knowledge base, skill sets and professional affiliations and relationships at the 2013 AFP Conference.
“As a young professional who is committed to the nonprofit sector, I am confident that, by attending the AFP conference in April and conversing with numerous fundraising professionals from around the globe, academic concepts will be solidified in my mind and I will grow in my understanding of how financial development trends and styles are actually put into practice,” said Luy.
Luy joined Richmont’s advancement team last spring after spending several years serving in development roles at Operation Mobilization and the Georgia Center for Nonprofits. A graduate of Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, Ms. Luy is currently pursuing an Executive Master’s degree in Philanthropic Studies while also serving as a Giving USA 2013 author.
