Spirituality Of Fundraising


Have you ever raised funds for your church, another organization, or a mission trip? Maybe you felt uncomfortable about asking people to donate money. It’s time to change the way you view this important task.

“Fundraising is, first and foremost, a ministry,” renowned author and teacher Henri Nouwen writes in the introduction. “It’s a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission.”

Nouwen approaches fundraising from a position of strength rather than weakness, seeing it as spiritual work. “Fundraising is precisely the opposite of begging,” he points out.

Unlike most business/leadership books, A Spirituality of Fundraising is brief and can easily be read in one sitting. Sections of this booklet include

*Fundraising as Ministry
*Helping the Kingdom Come About
*Our Security Base
*People Who Are Rich
*A New Communion
*Prayer and Gratitude
*Your Kingdom Come
Nouwen’s insights will shift your thinking about fundraising. You’ll never feel as though you are begging for money but instead view your work as true ministry. A must read for leaders in churches, nonprofits, ministries, and businesses!
