Overview

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
  • Asking
  • 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 will instead view your work as true ministry. A must-read for leaders in churches, nonprofits, ministries, and businesses!
