For many people, "fundraising" has become a dirty word. Conjuring images of guilt-inducing gimmickry, the predominant model saps the joy from both the donor and the receiver. It is time to dismantle certain shaky beliefs and practices, rediscovering a path that values the giver as much as the gift.
Co-written by David Weekley, the chairman of David Weekley Homes and one of America's most influential philanthropists, this small book outlines a Kingdom perspective on fundraising in order to energize a new generation of generosity.]]>
