Center for Philanthropy | Stories of Success

La Sierra University's Center for Philanthropy is the first of its kind in the Western states. It provides assistance to non-profit organizations in developing the skills and knowledge required to successfully cultivate friends and funds needed to carry out their mission. Seasoned professionals, those new to the world of fund development, and students can all benefit from the Center's programs.

The Center shares cutting-edge research and trends in fundraising and philanthropy with organizations, professionals, students, and the general public. It not only offers courses and classes, but also sponsors a lecture series featuring prominent major donors and executives with national foundations. It provides a place to network with peers and organizations doing critically important work locally and globally.

On Tuesday, April 12, Dr. James Erickson presented the work of the Center and its recent participants to an assembly of students, faculty, staff, and friends of La Sierra University. Dr. Erickson was joined by Cordell Thomas of the Axis Foundation, Becci Diaz of the Community Settlement Association, LSU Students Jaylene Chung and Courtney Yamanishi, Kevin McCarthy (CEO) of United Way of the Inland Valleys, and Dr. Jarvis Pahl of the Pahl Business & Educational Consortium (PBEC).
