Who Should Attend:

The Development Institute is designed for both novice and experienced fundraisers and will feature separate tracks for both levels.

  • Campus Ministers new to fundraising
  • Campus Ministers experienced in fundraising
  • Directors of Campus Ministry
  • Campus ministry board members and key volunteers
  • Campus ministry pastors
  • Development Directors
  • University development staff
  • Non-profit development staff

Why You Should Attend:

Fundraising is all about developing relationships and the Development Institute works from this basic principle. You will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn from and share with peers in roundtable discussions and informal conversations.
  • Interact with major donors to Catholic campus ministry centers to help you understand how to develop relationships.
  • Receive valuable information from experienced fundraisers who have established successful fundraising programs – what works and what does not work – in small workshops with time for answers to your questions.
  • Grow in your understanding of fundraising, while at the same time, encouraging growth in your relationship with God.
