Learn & Lead is Back!
“Leave work to Learn on Thursday, and then return to work
after Friday afternoon ready to Lead!”

After a COVID-induced break, our annual fundraising training for schools, churches, and other Christ-based organizations will be on Thursday and Friday, April 28 and 29 in Fort Wayne at the Busse Alumni Center on the campus of Purdue University Fort Wayne.

Join us for our annual Noon-2-Noon Faith-Based Fundraising Retreat as we welcome back by popular demand 
Dr. Bill Stanczykiewicz as our retreat speaker. Bill is the Director of the Fund Raising School at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the nation’s leader in fundraising education and research.

We are also returning to our 
Noon-2-Noon Retreat format, with one speaker for the entire event, which starts at noon on Thursday and finishes after lunch on Friday. Attendees will not only have access to world-class training, but also have one-on-one mentoring opportunities with a national expert and with others in the field. Bill will also infuse faith-based best practices into all sessions.

The agenda is as follows:
Thursday, April 28:
12:00 p.m.: Opening Lunch
1:00-4:00 p.m.: The Fundraising Landscape, and Planning the Case for Support
5:00 p.m.: Reception
6:00-8:00 p.m.: Organizational Readiness for Fundraising, and Building your Case for Support

Friday, April 29:
9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.: Introduction to Planned Giving
12:00pm: Closing Lunch

This year is co-sponsored by The Lutheran SGO of Indiana and is priced to encourage attendance by teams: principals, pastors, executive directors, their boards, and key staff. The more we can share the wit and wisdom of Bill, the better our organizations can be!
