Animals are an important part of any farm. They give us food and clothing, they protect us and even help with chores. We’ll learn all about the furry and feathered friends on the farm and make some animal crafts too. Which animal will be your favorite? Our Saturday Samplers are monthly family friendly workshops catered towards small children.

|The gusty winds of spring are here. What better way to spend an afternoon than to fly a kite. We will share a brief history of kites, make our own kites, and then go and take them for a spin (weather permitting). We will also make some paper airplanes to fly as well. You can come for the whole time, or just a little while. It will be high flying fun for the whole family.

As part of our 2014 Nurturing Nonprofits Learning Series, we’re going to look at Donor Development with Melanie J. Norton.
Focus Areas for Effective Development
Part one of this session will take a look at donor motivation and share the latest information on who gives and why. How do you know where to focus your efforts and most effectively use these precious resources? And how do you translate this focus into increased philanthropic dollars for your organization?
Introducing Planned Giving into your donor conversations. In the second half, you’ll discover tools and tips to help you provide the full range of giving opportunities to your donors and prospects. As an important partner of major and annual giving, a robust planned giving program is a chief component of any development operation and a strong deferred gift pipeline provides financial stability for your organization.
Cost is $35 per session
Time: 8:30am Continental Breakfast, 9:00 – 11:30am Program
To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the LJC at 317-738-8264.
