Dear Development and Campus Ministry Professionals:
What impact would an extra $20,000 dollars make on your mission? An extra $50,000? $100,000? Our guess is “a lot!”
But how do you get there? The answer is easier than you think –attend the annual Development Institute hosted by the Catholic Campus Ministry Association!
Whether you’re a new full time fundraiser, a campus minister struggling to raise money on the side, or a seasoned veteran of development, we have workshops and presentations you can’t afford to miss; classes such as How to Setup Fundraising Operations, Soliciting Major Gifts, Effective Leadership, Emerging Trends in Fundraising, and more. With tracks for those new to fundraising as well as experienced fundraisers, there’s something for everyone.
We want you, your institution, and your mission to flourish. That’s why we bring some of the best fundraisers from across the country to train you in the best practices and advanced concepts of philanthropy and development. When you leave, you’ll be equipped with the plans, systems, tools, skills and relationships necessary to take your ministry to the next level of success.
Building the Kingdom of God is challenging work. But our work is blessed, and with the right training, you can inspire an entire community to join you by investing in your mission. All you have to do is ask. We’ll show you how to do it, and do it well.
On behalf of the entire 2013 Development Institute committee, we invite you, your associates, and your friends to join us in Purdue for a productive (and really fun!) week.
Your 2013 Development Institute Co-Chairs
Tara Doyon, Stewardship & Development Director
Christopher Hanzeli, Director of Advancement
