A Guide to Fundraising for your Own Professional DevelopmentBack
In July of 2022, the Center for Rabbinic Innovation, in partnership with the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, offered a training session for clergy across the field on garnering financial support for professional development for rabbis. This workshop helped participants consider:
- Where you can turn to ask for money
- Who you need to ask for general support
- Generate and practice some thoughtful “pitches” for why your community and/or funders should invest in your professional development.
Use this guide to assess your resources, refine your pitch and identify your next steps for resource development.
