For years, fundraisers for faith-based nonprofits have been inspired by Henri Nouwen's words: ""Fundraising is, first and foremost, a ministry."" In the brief but impactful sermon-turned-book A Spirituality of Fundraising, Nouwen asserts that fundraising is more than an effort to support a common goal; it involves the calling and prayer for a common mission.
While serving alongside the famous priest and author in a L'Arche community for disabled persons, Nathan Ball learned firsthand from Nouwen. In A Spirituality of Fundraising Workbook Edition, Ball provides a how-to guide to accompany Nouwen’s teachings. This new release from Upper Room Books combines the work of Nouwen and Ball to provide inspiration as well as practical tools for fundraisers—both professional and volunteer—whose ministries rely on donations.
This workbook edition includes questions for reflection, discussion prompts for volunteer groups, suggestions for putting theory into practice, and the complete text of its bestselling predecessor, A Spirituality of Fundraising.
