The Episcopal Church Office of Development will present the Fall 2013 Fundraising Symposium – It’s All About Money! – on Thursday and Friday, September 26 and 27.

Designed for directors of development at dioceses, congregations, and other Episcopal organizations, as well as clergy interested in parish/diocesan fundraising, It’s All About Money! will be held at the Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Ave., New York City.

“The majority of respondents to a survey we conducted indicated that the topics most helpful to them are: talking about money in stewardship campaigns; preaching about money;  asking people to remember the church in their wills; and talking with major donors,” explained Elizabeth Lowell, Episcopal Church Director of Development. “Based on the feedback, it was clear that our Fall 2013 Fundraising Symposium should address these critical topics.”

Both days will feature plenary sessions, presented by leaders in philanthropy, followed by focused workshops. The event will conclude on Friday with a festive Eucharist.
