More About this Book

“Fundraising is, first and foremost, a ministry,” best-selling author and renowned spiritual teacher Henri Nouwen writes. “It’s a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission.” Nouwen encourages us to see fundraising as spiritual work and approach it confidently. “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.

"As someone who's been raising money as part of ministry for two years now this was one of the best things I've ever read on fundraising."
"Short, simple and deep. Important read for those individuals involved in fundraising for the Kingdom."
