Lake Institute on Faith & Giving fosters a deeper understanding of the dynamic relationship between faith and giving, through research, education, and public conversation. As a bridge between the academy and faith-based organizations and networks, we seek to explore the distinct challenges and opportunities at the intersection of faith and fundraising. David P. King, Ph.D. will introduce Lake Institute and offer an overview of why the faith and fundraising intersection matters for all fundraisers and leaders of nonprofits today.
