Event Details

The Executive Certificate in Religious Fundraising (ECRF) is an eight-week online course and practical application project through the Lake Institute on Faith & Giving, part of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.

The course provides the research, tools, and customized training to meet the growing needs of leaders in religious communities and fundraisers of faith-based organizations. The focus of the ECRF is on the cultural, organizational, and philanthropic practices unique to religious institutions. These practices in turn enable donors motivated by spiritual and religious values to experience the joy of generous giving.

The ECRF is made up of the following four key topics, selected readings, and a final project.

  • Nurturing Generous Congregations & Organizations
  • Nurturing Generous Donors
  • The Practice of Religious Fundraising
  • Integrating Religious Leadership & Fundraising
