The Vocation of Fundraising

Event details

“I could never do what you do. Don’t you get tired of asking people for money?”

The Vocation of Fundraising

It’s a question almost every development professional has faced in their time on the job. Fundraising is often viewed as a necessary evil within non-profit organizations or with suspicion by the public at large.

It’s the lifeblood of any organization but is a high-pressure, high turnover role. Statistics show most fundraisers average 12-18 months at an organization and almost 40 percent leave the profession entirely within two years.

What factors contribute to this turnover—and how can development professionals develop the spiritual health and resiliency they need to thrive in their roles?

How can fundraising become a calling…a craft that fosters relationships, inspires generosity, and fuels valuable work in our communities?

Join Denver Institute for Faith & Work for “The Vocation of Fundraising”, Thursday, October 12th at Save Our Youth. Hear from local development experts and connect with fellow fundraisers at this encouraging, thought-provoking gathering.
