Spirituality of Fundraising – Henri Nouwen

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

Coach your Champions – Eric Foley

Is your Christian nonprofit or church struggling financially? Do you find yourself saying, “If only we could find a few more givers with deep pockets to help us make budget”?

It’s an understandable sentiment. But the Bible holds a totally different approach to major donor development–one completely counter to the secular fundraising approach ministries have been taught they must practice. In this nuts and bolts nonprofit fable, you’ll learn how:

  • God has already sent your organization all the major donors you need
  • Major donors are about more than big gifts; they’re champions awaiting your coaching to make a comprehensive difference in your cause
  • Each and every person who comes to your ministry is sent as a gift and challenge from God–and God is holding you accountable to grow each one to their fullest potential

As you set aside the secular shackles you’ve unwitting placed on your Christian development program, you’ll lower the barriers to meaningful involvement in your cause while raising the bar for what you can expect from your ministry’s champions –all while having a lot more fun in fundraising!

The Sower – R. Scott Rodin & Gary Hoag

Redefining the Ministry of
Raising Kingdom Resources

By R. Scott Rodin & Gary G. Hoag

The purpose of this book is to provide momentum to a movement aimed at the heart of every person who is involved in the process of raising money or giving money for the work of God’s Kingdom. You may be a full-time development officer, an executive director, a pastor, a president, a board member, a volunteer or a faithful giver. You may have decades of experience in fund development, or this may be the first exposure to this topic. If you care about giving or raising money for God’s work, this book is for you.

This movement is a realignment of priorities that places changed hearts above changed bank balances. It is a new order that seeks to develop faithful stewards whose hearts are rich toward God. It redefines development work as ministry in the Kingdom of God. And it replaces manipulative techniques and closing strategies with a dependence on prayer and relationship building as the essential tools for success.

All that sowers can do is sow faithfully and wait and hope and believe. Sowers cannot play God and cause the seeds to grow. All they can do, and must do, is sow faithfully and regularly and trust God for the increase.
