Fall 2019 Workshops 

Fundraising Workshop- Stories of Sustainability 

In the Stories of Sustainability workshop, you will hear about successful projects in three areas: events, partnerships, and crowdsource fundraising. From these, you will receive a toolkit of resources and techniques that can put a sustainable financial foundation under your program. Together, we will launch you in mapping the fundraising program that fits for you. The workshop will be led by Katherine Valyi, currently volunteer program director of the Episcopal Charities-funded Jones Center at Christ Church Riverdale. She comes to us from a decades-long career in Advancement/Development, most of it serving youth. The program will also include a panel. The goal of the workshop is to equip you to create your own event; to design your online fundraising campaign; to build successful partnerships. Who should attend? Anyone interested in one of these three fundraising techniques. You won’t be able to do it all, so bring three people if you want to learn about each!

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 annual schedule includes both webinars and in-person trainings. In-person workshops are held in Poughkeepsie as well as Manhattan.
