The Practice of Religious Fundraising 
- January/February 2023 

Over the course of the three webinars, we explored a foundation of concepts related to fundraising in a religious context. During this in-person workshop, David P. King, Ph.D. will offer a move toward implementing those concepts into the practices of fundraising. In particular, he will address the spirituality of fundraising and the ways in which it shapes the work we do across a wide variety of organizations among donors and fundraisers.
