Designed in collaboration with The General Theological Seminary, the Faithful Fundraising workshop is now being offered to individual parishes and organizations. This eight hour session trains leaders in the best practices of fundraising for application to faith-based organizations and settings. Implementation of these best practices typically results in 10% growth in contributed income. The fee for this workshop is $700 and may include up to six participants.
The workshop provides a comprehensive knowledge of fundraising to empower participants to improve giving in their own communities. Both informative and interactive techniques are used. The program draws on the field’s best practices and is grounded in the beliefs that God calls us to live in abundance and without fear. The workshop covers:
- Building Blocks of a Successful Fundraising Program
- Methods of Asking
- Donor Communications
- Annual Giving
- Grant Proposals
- Major and Capital Gifts
- Case Studies and Action Plans
The program is geared toward fundraising in faith communities but is applicable to all charitable organizations. Customized workshops may also be requested.
