You are new to the Ministry of Fund Raising.   So where to begin? What is it that you really need to know as you embrace this ministry?  This session will present you with a solid blueprint of starting points - from planning, to basic facts, to donor cultivation to ‘landing’ the first of many gifts.  You'll learn the “A to Z” essential components of a comprehensive development program.  Included will also be mentoring from ‘seasoned’ fund raising professionals that will meet individually with you to ‘walk through’ the conference sessions so that you can “Invigorate Your Mission Through the Magic of Catholic Philanthropy”.
