Are you interested in learning best practices for sustaining and growing a small or medium-sized congregation (up to 250 families) through more focused and structured fund raising? Our three sessions will connect you with your peers and help guide you down the road to more successful fund raising, regardless of where you are on that road now. 




Guided by guest facilitator Joel M. Blechman, we discovered how to effectively tell your community’s story and develop your USP (Unique Selling Proposition).

Avi Friedman covers creating a culture of philanthropy, fundraising tips and tricks, and ideas for stewardship in this presentation focused on fundraising.

Rabbi Shelly Barnathan and VP of Innovation and Impact Cyd Weissman use design thinking and new models of personal connection to explore options for expanding and growing membership.
