Re-thinking Advancement from the Ground Up: Why, How, and How Come?
Fundraising for an organization or ministry is not merely an important task, it's a noble one. Successful leaders must possess the theological vision to recognize the necessity of asking, the joy of giving, and the beautifully collaborative nature of advancing the kingdom. It should come as no surprise that the literal translation of the word philanthropy is "love of mankind" - and Christian philanthropy enables us to love God through loving mankind.
This conference is planned by and geared to Chief Institutional Advancement Officers - but we are encouraging Advancement teams to attend. Register three from your school and the fourth registration is free! Please join us as we engage in a highly interactive seminar with case studies which will be philosophical and inspirational as well as full of practical applications.
Advancement professionals must carefully weigh the cost/benefit of every training opportunity.
Throughout the conference there will be ample opportunity to dialog with our speaker and your colleagues, including designated time for CIAOs and other peer groupings.
Included in the registration prices is a copy of Giving & Getting in the Kingdom: A Field Guide by Wheaton College VP and featured presenter: Mark Dillon, Ph.D.
Mark Dillon has led Christian higher education fundraising efforts for over 20 years. He will lead us in three sessions:
* Joy in the Journey
* Core Assumptions of the Advancement Task
* Counquering Advancement Conundrums
