The Spirituality of Fundraising

by Henri Nouwen

This small book is so packed with fundraising wisdom that it truly is a must-read for anyone involved in fundraising (even staff members of nonprofits). If the term “spirituality” turns you away from reading this book, a bookclub member recommended that you replace the word God with “tree.” Another helpful substitution, courtesy of a good dictionary, is to replace the word ministry with “service.” 

If you still don’t want to sift through the religious undertones, we have paraphrased some of the main points of the book in non-religious terms and would be happy to share our work and discussion questions we prepared. We just ask that you purchase the book before requesting our notes. Contact us for more on this insightful book.
