Registration is Closing Soon for Faith & Fundraising Retreat Learn & Lead 2022

There is still time to bring a team to Learn & Lead 2022 on April 28 & 29 at the Busse Alumni Center on the campus of Purdue-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. CFRE continuing education credits are available and will be provided after the event.

The retreat returns to our “Noon-2-Noon” format, with one speaker for the entire event starting at noon on Thursday and finishing 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 local and regional fundraising staff. Bill will also infuse faith-based best practices into all sessions.

The agenda is as follows:

Thursday, April 28:

  • 12:00pm: Opening Lunch

  • 1:00pm - 4:00pm: The Fundraising Landscape, and Planning the Case for Support

  • 5:00pm: Reception

  • 6:00pm - 8:00pm: Organizational Readiness for Fundraising, & Building your Case for Support

Friday, April 29:

  • 9:00am - 12:00pm: Introduction to Planned Giving

  • 12:00pm: Closing Lunch

This year 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!
