DURHAM, N.H. -- University of New Hampshire Professor Jerry Marx has been invited by the President and Mrs. Clinton to participate in the White House Conference on Philanthropy Friday, Oct. 22.

Marx, assistant professor of social work in UNH's School of Health and Human Services, has published several articles in national journals on American charitable giving and volunteerism. He is one of a group of academics, philanthropists and national service leaders invited to attend the conference.

Titled "Gifts to the Future," the event will feature two sessions: a discussion on expanding the American tradition of giving, and an open forum on new philanthropy in the next millennium.

The conference will be held in the East Room of the White House, and a satellite broadcast will carry two hours of the four-hour event, with a start time of 1 p.m. In New Hampshire, the American Red Cross, Concord Area Chapter, will broadcast the event.
