    This network on fund development is geared towards larger congregations (more than 175-member households). Together we’ll build a best-practice set for fund development in congregations in our movement. We will explore questions such as do we launch a campaign every year? How do similar-sized congregations choose to solicit? How do we gather data? What are some innovative ways to bridge our annual budget gap? The network will feature an interactive component around imagining ourselves as the advisers of a new large congregation and brainstorming about how to go about fundraising. Guest presenters such as Cantor Chayim Frenkel of Kehillat Israel will join network sessions.
