My name is Calvin Quick, and I serve as a Donor Services Officer at CAF America. With a deep-rooted passion for global affairs, I pursued my educational journey to gain a comprehensive understanding of political science and international relations. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Georgia, where I delved into the intricacies of domestic and international politics. This solid foundation paved the way for my pursuit of a Master’s degree in International Relations with a specialization in global governance, politics, and security from American University in Washington, DC.
Having been born and raised in Atlanta, my exposure to diverse cultures and my extensive travels to approximately 40 countries and counting have fostered a profound appreciation for the world’s intricacies. These experiences have played a pivotal role in shaping my perspective and fueling my desire to contribute to global causes. As an Eagle Scout, I was instilled with the values of service and volunteerism from a young age. Building upon this foundation, I dedicated my time to support various humanitarian initiatives, both domestically and abroad. I volunteered for pop-up medical clinics and collaborated with nonprofits in Romania, the Dominican Republic, Peru, Egypt, Nepal, and Ghana. These opportunities further ignited my passion for nonprofit work and the impact they create on a global scale.
At CAF America, my multifaceted interests and experiences seamlessly converge in my role. I am entrusted with the responsibility of managing over a dozen of our premier client funds to facilitate grants across the globe. The profound impact of the work I witness and contribute to at CAF America continuously inspires me, and I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to be part of such meaningful endeavors.
