What trends and issues in the nonprofit fundraising sector impact the Catholic development community the most? How can we learn from these issues to develop strategic plans that will benefit our mission? Join two recognized leaders in the Catholic philanthropic community as they identify and address these questions in an interactive program that will allow attendees to ask questions and offer their own thoughts on the topic.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The implications of these trends for Catholic fundraising.
  • Insights into emerging trends unique to the Catholic community.
  • Practical tools to turn insights into strategic choices for your organization.
