What is Engaging Philanthropy? 

The Engaging Philanthropy: An Advancement Series for Non-public Schools is an opportunity for non-public schools to dive deeper into the big picture perspective about fundraising. For the seasoned fundraising program, it will cause you to think about your current process. Are you taking full advantage of opportunities before you? Has your program hit a wall, or reached a fork in the road where opportunities and challenges should be considered? Are your metrics on point? Is your staff achieving its potential? Are there significant gift opportunities being missed?

For the beginning or 'just getting by' program, it is going to challenge you to think about your approach to fundraising, philanthropy, and potential. What is your stake in philanthropy? What is your current institutional thinking? How do you begin to think about opportunities? How do you seize those opportunities? What is being forfeited if you aren't involved in engaging philanthropy?Whether seasoned or a beginning program, we begin the process of moving past 'just getting by' programs, and towards our ability to think bigger, and make that vision a reality.

Engaging Philanthropy: The Summer Seminar is being offered for $300 on June 15-16, 2017
