Formulating a Spirituality of Fund Development---The Transformational Effect

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will inspire professionals in the field of fund development to view this profession as a true ministry to further the mission of an organization. Supplementing the “how to” sessions, this interactive presentation will enable attendees to better appreciate the core spiritual dimension of development ministry.

The session will be anchored by five sources:

  • A Spirituality of Fundraising (Henri Nouwen)
  • Imaging Abundance (Kerry Alys Robinson)
  • Toward a Theology of Fundraising (Most Rev. Thomas J. Murphy)
  • Saint Ignatius as Fund-Raiser (Thomas Clancy SJ – Studies in the Spirituality of Jesuits)
  • The Ministry of Fundraising (Rev. Paul Reinert SJ)

Thoughts from other surprise “visitors” will add to the richness of the presentation!

This session will move us all closer to the heart of what motivates a person to be involved in this ministry, whether as director or donor, leader or learner. Come and be inspired!
