Lankford Track: Annual Fund Issues Coordinated by Judy B. Lankford, CFRE Additional Instructors: Nancy ReMine Trego, Trego and Associates, LLC Lisa Freeman, E.L. Freeman and Associates M. Michelle Thomson, YMCA of Greater Richmond A well-run annual giving program not only provides critical funds to operate not-for-profit organizations but also serves as the platform for major gifts, capital campaigns, planned giving, and endowments. Yet many organizations operate the annual fund primarily through mailings and special events that only scratch at the surface of fundraising potential. This series of five sessions and a hands-on case study will provide practical and in-depth training. Senior development professionals, experienced in leading comprehensive fundraising programs, will lead these courses. Faculty and students will address some of the most important, and often the thorniest, issues of annual giving programs.

FOR

Creating Wealth Instructor: E. Gregory Frank, certified seminar leader and financial coach Are you frustrated by a lack of financial success? Do you earn a decent income but still struggle to make ends meet? Stop worrying. You can improve your financial situation without getting a raise!

Unfortunately, most of us end up with “more month than money.” All that stands between the typical American family and wealth is just $300 - $400 extra a month. How will you find this money? The answer lies in understanding the relationship between wealth and spending and learning how to Spend Smart. “Creating Wealth” teaches a powerful, but easy-to-use “REVERSE BUDGET” technique where the money you save on spending automatically becomes cash in your pocket, each and every month! Learn the secrets of millionaires and how to “model” financially successful people. Discover your hidden “Spending Personality” and learn to make purchasing decisions that support your financial goals. This course can be taken alone or as a companion to “Living Debt Free.” Registration includes workbook. An optional textbook is available directly from the instructor after class for $43.

Immerse yourself in the language and the warmth of the Hispanic culture by living in Zacatecas, Mexico, for two weeks, attending Spanish classes, field trips, and events! Zacatecas is “the city with the pink stone face and silver heart.” Elegant, almost regal, and a true colonial gem, it is one of Mexico’s most photogenic cities and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993. Zacatecas, located seven hours from Mexico City, is one of Mexico’s highest cities at 8,000 feet. Spanish conquistadores discovered rich lodes of silver in the Cerro de La Bufa, and just two years later, in 1546, the initial settlement was proclaimed a city. Within the last 15 years, Zacatecas has been “rediscovered” and is once again becoming one of Mexico’s top producers of silver. Beautifully preserved pink stone buildings, adorned with delicate wrought iron balconies, line spotless narrow streets that twist and turn with the city. Come live within the heart of this beautiful city for two weeks and experience its warmth and hospitality.

Program Schedule: Immersion classes held daily 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Afternoon field trips and evening activities include: • Museums • Mine “El Eden” • Cable Car ride “Teleferico” • Cathedral of Zacatecas • Latin Dancing • Cultural events in Zacatecas • Gonzalez Ortega Central Market

CLASS LOCATION Most courses are held on the University of Richmond campus. However, some are held in local businesses or churches. Exact locations are sent to the participant in a confirmation letter before the course begins.
