About the Workshop

In fundraising, the desire to raise needed resources in a way that aligns with our values often gets lost in the pressure to do what will bring the greatest financial return. Yet, most of us would agree that this work should be done according to biblical values.

The question is, do we understand those values specifically as they pertain to our fund
development work, and have we written them down in a way that can allow them to guide us in our daily decisions and actions? That is the purpose of creating a written “theology of development” for your school’s fundraising work. This workshop will provide a detailed overview of what that document might look like, how you can use it, and then facilitate the development of your own document for your school.

Meeting Date and Time:  Starting February 21st, Tuesdays, 9:00am PST
