The vision of too many potential missionaries and church planters is squashed by the fear and perceived burden of raising the funds needed to support the work. A long-time ministry leader and fundraising trainer, Bill Dillon has gathered stories, tools, and best practices to help workers quickly reach their fundraising goals.
"People Raising" covers the basics of developing a philosophy of and correct attitude toward fundraising, then focuses on the necessary practical skills and techniques. It strikes a healthy balance between the principles and the nuts and bolts.
"People Raising" was first published 20 years ago. This new edition has been significantly updated and expanded to reflect new approaches to communication, e.g., social media. It also includes helpful material addressing common fears and explaining the role of a fundraising coach.
Other helpful titles on this topic include Betty Barnett's book "Friendraising," Steve Shadrach's "Viewpoints: Fresh Perspectives on Personal Support Raising" and Myles Wilson's "Funding the Family Business" (new 2011 edition).
