The Fisher-Bernstein Institute for Jewish Philanthropy & Leadership (Brandeis University) has announced the launch of a professional development program for the Jewish community:
Development at the Core: creating a fundraising culture will be a nine-month program of study and action that intends to strengthen the Jewish community by helping communal professionals increase the annual fundraising capacity of their agencies and organizations.
The Development at the Core program is based on three premises:
- Annual fundraising is the platform for all development endeavors in successful nonprofit organizations
- Fundraising is the job of the whole organization and not just the development professional
- Fundraising in the Jewish realm requires a vision for the Jewish people and an appreciation for the Jewish meaning of giving and soliciting funds
