Friday, June 5

11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

People need to give; it's ingrained in our DNA.  Our spirits come alive when we do and die when we don't.  Giving blesses the giver and transforms their lives.  Most fundraisers will tell you they feel their work is a calling that resonates with their own spirituality, regardless of their faith tradition. Interpreting the spirituality of philanthropy (both giving and asking) can help you as a fundraiser become more effective in your calling and connect to your donors on a deeper level that is more meaningful to them.  Join panelists Julie Diamond, Executive Director of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation,Cindy Breilh, Medical Teams International's Director of Advancement for the Pacific Northwest, and Al Zimmerman, former Executive Director or the Northwest Christian Community Foundation, as they discuss their perspective on interpreting the spirituality of philanthropy. 

 Doors open at 11 a.m. Lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by the program from noon to 1 p.m.

Multnomah Athletic Club, 1849 SW Salmon Street, 97205.

The cost for the event is $35 for AFP members, $25 for AFP Young Professional members and $50 for nonmembers and guests.
