WORKSHOP: "What's Age Got to Do with It?"
Every generation faces, and is shaped by, radically different social contexts. How do the experiences of each generation mold and change their understandings of money and generosity? This workshop will briefly review each living generation and consider different approaches to unleash its instinct to share.
LUNCHEON PROGRAM: "What Secular Fundraisers Have to Learn About Religious Motivation"
Not all people consider themselves religious, yet most people surveyed describe themselves as spiritual. What might professionals in the philanthropic world learn from the Christian Church about its conviction that generosity is a universal spiritual need, and therefore that fundraising offers a service to donors? Rev. Travis will make no attempt at proselytizing, and he will also offer unvarnished observations from his own context as a religious professional.
The Reverend Karl Travis is Senior Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth. He has long been fascinated with generosity: what motivates it, where it comes from, and how to encourage it. Rev. Travis speaks nationally in the religious world about the benefits and joys of sharing. A graduate of Trinity University and the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, Travis moved to Fort Worth from Detroit in 2007. He has three children who delight him, most of the time.
Deadline to register online at www.afpdallas.org is Wednesday, September 26th. After that date, make reservations by fax or mail on a space-available basis.
