Friederike (Rike) Bostick
Consulting Projects Manager, Houston
A Houston transplant, Rike brings a complimentary mix of a strong work ethic, an international perspective with a deep appreciation for cultural diversity, a sincere passion for helping others and a “can do” attitude to her role as a Consulting Projects Manager at Dini Spheris. Born and raised in Germany, Rike has worked in the nonprofit sector for almost a decade – supporting educational, marketing and fundraising programming at Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship, AOC Community Media, the Australian American Chamber of Commerce, Texas Executive Women and the Houston Museum District.
While serving as the association manager for the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Houston Chapter, Rike gained a first-hand knowledge of the scope of the nonprofit sector and philanthropy in the greater Houston area. Rike is more than a great technician when it comes to supporting capital campaigns and other client projects; she is a believer who understands and appreciates the important roles played by nonprofits in addressing some of our community’s and society’s most important issues. A strong advocate for nonprofits, Rike finds success in helping each client achieve their goals no matter the size of the campaign or service provided.
Rike received her MS in Communication and Media Studies from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and her BA in North American Studies from Potsdam University, Germany.
