The workshop included sessions of rules for charities and donors, ethics for financial development professionals, gift acceptance policies, encouraging south Texans to give and leveraging your strengths, among other topics. 

The presenter was Thomas W. Cullinan, senior vice president and regional manager with Thompson and Associates.

About 90 individuals from organizations such as chambers, Habitat for Humanity, foundations, The Salvation Army, Food Banks and others attended the program.
