CERT 315 - Fundraising and Financing of Camp / Retreat Ministries

2 credits
Charitable fundraising in support of the outdoor ministry programs of the various denominations is facing increasing challenges to the previous “routine” processes by which the extra-congregational services are funded and maintained. As congregational/parish allotments are reduced to provide funding for more and more local interests/needs, the amounts left to support broader service ministries are diminished. These ministries, then, are forced to develop their own support bases and “asking techniques” in order to provide both basic services and new initiatives. This course will offer a presentation of the basic tenets and concepts for charitable fundraising, an investigation of the requisite elements for a successful program and the specific techniques used in the design of a fundraising program for specific initiatives, the “asking” process, and the specific “ask.” Since the course will provide several opportunities for the application of concepts to a specific case situation, students should come prepared with the descriptive details (financial, population, and program descriptions) of an independent ministry program to be used in these exercises. Same as: PSTH 551 .
