Publisher's Description

Fundraising has always been an essential element of the Christian life: churches, schools, and many other organizations rely on it to function. But it is a risky enterprise, fraught with questions and challenges. How can Christians raise funds with integrity?

In this book Peter Harris and Rod Wilson, experienced fundraisers themselves, bring fundraising within the scope of normal Christian life and work. They consider fundraising in light of the relationships that lie at its heart—with God, with creation, and with ourselves.

After first laying a biblical foundation by discussing 2 Corinthians 8–9, Harris and Wilson develop seven themes central to the giving and receiving of money: integration, people, work, success, need, method, and money. In a final section, the authors offer their own personal experiences, questions, suggestions, and valuable insights that they have gained from their many years of fundraising as Christians.

Editorial Reviews

Eugene Peterson
—author of The Message
"Rod Wilson and Peter Harris are two well-trained and practiced companions on the journey of enabling the Christian community to carry on its ministry faithfully. Their Keeping Faith in Fundraising is both accurate in its emphasis and motivational in its focus. It draws our attention to the centrality of our common mission as brothers and sisters to both give and receive money in a way that reflects Jesus."

Paul Lorimer
—The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada
"Drawing on strong biblical foundations and decades of stories, Wilson and Harris here present the transformative power of relationships in navigating faith-based fundraising. I am excited to see the radical change that will happen when this practical guide is put in the hands of church, parachurch, and denominational leaders!"

Daniel O. Aleshire
—Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada
"The relatively abundant literature on fundraising for Christian organizations or institutions includes much about the technology of fundraising but little substantive biblical interpretation, thoughtful applied theology, or personal history that, together, form the substructure for a fundraiser's efforts. This book does exactly the opposite. If deep Christian conviction has brought you to leadership positions that require fundraising, this book will teach you how to be authentically Christian as you undertake the task."
