How has the Catholic fundraising community managed its efforts? And what are we doing to move forward? This workshop has been specifically designed to address these questions and benefit institutional leaders, development directors, and the development staff of religious organizations. All religious organizations including charities, shrines, religious orders, schools, parishes, dioceses, and social service agencies can benefit from this program. The workshop will be interactive with opportunities for participants to share their questions and concerns, as well as anything they have learned from their experiences in fundraising.
