We’re getting ready to start a new year and a great time to jumpstart your fundraising efforts! Join us on Thursday, December 15th as Sr. Bernadette Mota, Director of Mission Advancement for the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco, will share with you some valuable strategies to expand your mission.  Whether your organization is just beginning or has a development office in place, these resources will help you take a critical look at what you are doing and how you can make enhancements. You will also learn about what it takes to create a successful pitch and business plan.

For the first time, you can attend GIVEN Academy either online or in-person at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, DC! In-person attendance includes early access to the Shrine, prayer with the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and veneration of Saint John Paul II’s relic, and a networking reception before the presentation. Both in-person and online attendance include Q&A with Sr. Bernadette, a resource notebook on the presentation topic, and access to the session recording after attending.

About the Presenter

Sr. Bernadette was born and raised in Southern California and is one of six siblings.  She participated in youth, high school and collegiate athletics and was a recreation coordinator prior to dropping everything to serve as a lay missionary.  She thought she would be living with other young adult lay missionaries but found herself living in a convent with a bunch of sisters. That year turned everything upside down for her, and she decided to enter religious life with the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco in 2005. She has a special place in her heart for accompanying young adults on their journey from her own experience in college campus ministry and young adult ministry.  Her ministry experience includes young adult ministry, high school and college campus ministry, athletics, youth faith formation, outreach ministry, and fundraising and is presently serving as the Province Director of Mission Advancement in San Antonio, Texas.
