Harvest Time Legacy Fund Committee meets to develop strategy


The Harvest Time Legacy Fund Committee met Aug. 15 by Zoom Video Conference to develop a fundraising plan to address the Yellowstone Conference's financial situation. During the conference call, committee members heard from Rhodes Logan, Chief Development Officer from The United Methodist Church's Development Center, to ground their strategy and look at how to best engage churches in the Yellowstone Conference. Following the General Council on Finance and Administration's visit to the conference office the last week of July, it was determined that Logan could serve as a consultant to the Harvest Time Legacy Fund Committee

In addition to Logan, committee members also collaborated with Kristi Kinnison, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain United Methodist Foundation. The Rocky Mountain United Methodist Foundation entered an interim operating agreement with the Yellowstone Conference Foundation this year.

The goal of the Harvest Time Legacy Fund is to raise $100,000 for the 2017 budget. Watch for more updates about the committee and its fundraising plan in the coming weeks. Online giving is available on the Yellowstone Conference website: www.yacumc.org/donate. There is a drop-down menu to specify your donation to "Harvest Time Campaign."
