Description

Join the New York Landmarks Conservancy's Sacred Sites program on Wednesday, March 27th from 6-8pm at the United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton for a fundraising “How-To” workshop.

Margaret Fredrickson of Graham-Pelton will show participants the basics of effective fundraising:
• fundamentals of capital campaigns
• making a persuasive case
• finding the best prospects
• when and why to engage a consultant
• preparing a fundraising plan
• First Presbyterian Church in Ithaca’s successful capital campaign presented as a case study

Our workshop is co-sponsored by the Preservation Association of the Southern Tier, Graham-Pelton Fundraising Consultants, and the Presbytery of Geneva.

Funding for this workshop is provided, in part, by the Gerry Charitable Trust.

The New York Landmarks Conservancy, founded in 1973, has loaned and granted more than $50 million, which has leveraged more than $1 billion in restoration projects. The Sacred Sites Program, the only statewide fund in the country assisting the restoration of historic religious institutions, has granted some $13.2 million to hundreds of religious institutions of all denominations since 1986.

Workshop is free, light dinner provided, but space is limited - you must RSVP to attend. Recommended for trustees, clergy, buildings and grounds & fundraising committee members, 2 members per congregation encouraged.

The United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton is located at 42 Chenango Street, Binghamton, NY 13901. There is limited parking at the church, but the nearby State Street Parking Garage will be available for $1/hour. The pedestrian bridge on garage level 4 leads to Chenango Street, right across the street from the church.
