St. Patrick Angel

Educational Seminars

As part of the launch of Planting Our Future, the Diocese has engaged a consultant to facilitate educational seminars on planned giving. The educational program is called The Donor Motivation Program (DMP). Seminars are presented by Mike Skrypnek.

The DMP is a copyrighted program that has been in operation since 1996. Consultants work with a few Dioceses in the United States, but we are the first one in Canada to work with them. The DMP is a chance for the Diocese to give back to our parishioners. It is a service we are able to offer you at no charge. We hope that you come away from these sessions feeling more in control of options for your estate and impassioned about the things that are important to you.

The DMP is delivered in Western Canada by Mike Skrypnek. Mike is a native Calgarian, author, philanthropist and financial planner. He believes very strongly in guiding families in their personal journey to realizing a bigger impact in their lifetimes and beyond. He offers the DMP to a variety of charities working in Western Canada.
