WiBN hosts Lunch N’ Learn July 25


DAYTON — Women in Business Networking (WiBN), a program of Better Business Bureau serving Dayton/Miami Valley, is hosting a Lunch N’ Learn in July titled How To Become A Philanthropist Without Being A Millionaire, featuring Jena Pado, CFRE, vice president, chief development officer for Dayton Children’s Hospital.

The Lunch N’ Learn is scheudled for Tuesday, July 25. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch at 11:45 a.m. before the program begins at noon, until 1 p.m. The lunch is taking place at the NCR Country Club, 4435 Dogwood Trl., Kettering, and costs $25 for WiBN Members and BBB Accredited Businesses/Charities or $35 for others

During this event, Pado will discuss how as women we were raised not to talk about money — so how do you know where or how to make your charitable gifts? Women are passionate about so many causes, but it’s hard to know where to get started. What organization do you give to? What amount should you give? This session will give practical advice on how you can have a powerful impact in your community through philanthropy.

Pado has over 24 years of fundraising experience and been a part of the foundation team at Dayton Children’s for the last 19 years. As the leader of the foundation, she sets the strategic vision for securing donations from all funding sources for the hospital. Leading a staff of 18, she crafts the fundraising strategy and manages Dayton Children’s Hospital Foundation Board. Pado earned a Bachelor of Science, Political Science from Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pa. She obtained her Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) in 2007.

Sheri Sword, WiBN’s executive director, says, “Giving back to our community is important. But, where do you start and how can you make the biggest impact? Our speaker’s expertise will help attendees create a financial plan for charitable giving, challenge them to focus their giving and take action. Register today to learn more about becoming the philanthropist you want to be.”
