Fall Workshops

Registration is now open for:


Building Your Development Plan

  • Thursday, October 11, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Diocesan House, 1047 Amsterdam Ave, Manhattan
  • Saturday, October 13, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Christ Church, 20 Carroll St, Poughkeepsie

Fundraising can seem overwhelming, especially if you are unsure where to start. Developing a clear plan provides direction for your work and clarifies lines of responsibility. Whether your program has staff members or you are completely volunteer-driven, a development plan is the key to securing the funds you need to serve.

Episcopal Charities’ Director of Development Henry Enright will lead a workshop filled with tips and examples on creating a new development plan, or honing your existing plan. Through hands-on activities, handouts, and the benefit of all the experience in the room, you will walk away with the tools to focus your fundraising.



We offer a series of professional development workshops for parish-based and parish-supported outreach programs in the Episcopal Diocese of New York. These sessions provide a forum in which to network, ask questions, gain valuable resources, and learn from experts in the field – all with the goal of increasing program sustainability. Clergy, program directors, and volunteers are all invited to participate.

Programs receiving Episcopal Charities’ grants are required to attend at least two workshops per year. The 2017 schedule includes both webinars and in-person trainings. In-person workshops are held in Poughkeepsie as well as Manhattan.
