Engaging Philanthropy: Cultivating Financial Support for Non-public Schools

What is Engaging Philanthropy?

The "Engaging Philanthropy" series is an opportunity for non-public schools to dive deep into big picture perspectives with fundraising. For the seasoned program it will make you think about your current process. Are you taking full advantage of opportunities? Has your program hit a wall, or reached a fork in the road where opportunities and challenges should be considered? Are your metrics on point? Is your staff achieving its potential? Are there significant gift opportunities being missed?

For the beginning or "just getting by" program, it is going to challenge you to think about your approach to fundraising, philanthropy, and potential. What is your stake in philanthropy? What is your current institutional thinking? How do you begin to think about opportunities? How do you seize them? What is being forfeited if you aren't involved in engaging philanthropy?

Whether seasoned or beginning, we begin the process of moving past "just getting by" and towards our ability to think bigger, and make that vision a reality.

Engaging Philanthropy: Becoming a High Net Worth Donor Fundraising Program

Wednesday, October 11, 2017
1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Mission Point Resort, Mackinac Island, Michigan

Private schools are providing great opportunities for the students they serve.  Faith-based students move on to become leaders, creators, and innovators. They build businesses and communities, and with the faith and values ingrained in them, they make an impact on a world in need. High net worth donors around the country realize the value that MANS students bring to the communities, and businesses they serve. Often, these students move on from MANS schools and become donors themselves.

Spend an afternoon discussing and understanding the traits of fundraising programs that attract high net worth gifts, and hear what high net worth philanthropists are considering when they make charitable commitments.

Registration now open for the Administrators' Conference! Click here to register, and choose pre-conference during the registration process (additional charge).
