Campaigners' Mission 2016

12:00AM - 11:55PM  

Contact Beverly Woznica

Give us six days and we’ll give you a mission you’ll never forget.


Want to become really successful at raising dollars? Join us for the worker-training mission for lay and professional fundraisers. Deepen your understanding of our work and polish your fundraising skills. Then return home ready to kick off the 2017 Campaign!


The Campaigners’ Mission is for anyone who wants to sharpen their face-to-face solicitation skills while building a network of peers and seeing our work in Israel firsthand.  Participants have included Federation executive directors, new professionals, emerging lay leaders. It's a great way to motivate and educate the people you rely on to keep your campaign humming. See itinerary highlights to-date.
