2C. TOWARD A CULTURE OF PHILANTHROPY: THE CHANGING FACE OF FUNDRAISING.
Susan O'Donnell Black, CFRE, Principal of Allene Professional Fundraising

2D. WELCOMING RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY.
Dr. MJ Ebenhack, and Dr. Martha McGovern
This workshop will look at what motivates people of faith to serve others and how to attract people from diverse faith traditions to nonprofit service. We will consider how leaders from a wide variety of faith communities might both strengthen and challenge our organizations. Questions to be addressed include: What are the motivations for Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and others? How can nonprofit work help people fulfill their religious commitments? How can we help people of differing faiths feel welcome and comfortable taking on leadership roles? How might nonprofits go about recruiting people of various faiths? How can people of diverse faiths working in common cause enrich a nonprofit and how can they themselves benefit from the experience.
As a result of this training participants will:
leave with an understanding of how various faith communities and nonprofits can join in common cause and why it is worth the effort to do so.
