Rooted in the belief that great Jewish communities need great leaders, Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership launches the Center for Jewish Leadership, a programmatic center dedicated to the leadership development of Jewish communal professionals and volunteers.
This is one in a series of workshops and master classes designed to enhance the knowledge, effectiveness, creativity, and strategic agility of current and future leaders, advancing the missions of the organizations they serve. Although designed for those working with Jewish agencies and organizations, the content will be beneficial to anyone seeking to learn best practices, including those working in the nonprofit, for profit, and social sectors.
In this four-session master class, Dr. Laura Mannion introduces the knowledge and skills necessary for your nonprofit organization to fundraise successfully. She will discuss how to balance a variety of funding streams to ensure cash flow and avoid over-reliance on any one source. She will take participants through the development, implementation, and management of a fundraising plan, including how to involve staff and trustees.
Dr. Laura Mannion is the director of development for the Franciscan Alliance Foundation and a member of the Spertus Institute faculty. A Certified Fundraising Executive, she began her career at Junior Achievement and has worked in senior-level fundraising positions for the American Cancer Society, College of DuPage Foundation, University of London Institute of Cancer Research, and the Weizmann Institute.
The Spertus Approach — Spertus Institute cultivates an atmosphere of lively discourse. We often hear from students and participants that their Spertus experiences are inspiring and transformative. That is by design, and it results in meaningful opportunities for personal and professional growth.
The Center for Jewish Leadership is supported by generous grants from the Crown Family and an anonymous foundation.
We are grateful for their support.
Learn. Lead. Inspire.
