Just in Time for Christmas: Gift-Giving for the Fundraiser in Your Life

As Black Friday looms, we would be remiss not to note that my first book, Coach Your Champions, is now available at Amazon.com. Give the fundraiser in your life the gift of Christian dignity in the exercise of their profession:

Is your Christian nonprofit or church struggling financially? Do you find yourself saying, “If only we could find a few more givers with deep pockets to help us make budget?”

It’s an understandable sentiment. But the Bible holds a totally different approach to major donor development – one completely counter to the secular fundraising approach ministries have been taught they must practice. In this nuts and bolts nonprofit fable, you’ll learn how:

  • God has already sent your organization all the major donors you need.
  • Major donors are about more than big gifts; they’re champions awaiting your coaching to make a comprehensive difference in your cause.
  • Each and every person who comes to your ministry is sent as a gift and challenge from God – and God is holding you accountable to grow each one to their fullest potential.

As you set aside the secular shackles you’ve unwittingly placed on your Christian development program, you’ll lower the barriers to meaningful involvement in your cause while raising the bar for what you can expect from your ministry’s champions – all while having a lot more fun in fundraising.

If you’ve already read Coach Your Champions and found it beneficial, do me a favor and take two minutes to post a review at amazon, would you? I’d love to read what you write, plus it’s embarrassing to me that The Good Housekeeping Great Bake Sale Cookbook: 75 Surefire Fundraising Favorites has more and better ratings than my book, even though mine even has better looking cookies on the cover.

I’m just saying.

    The title of this blog stirred excitement – I thought you were announcing that your new book was out earlier than anticipated. Now that my heart rate has normalized, I would be delighted to write a book recommendation on Amazon. Coach Your Champions is truly a vital book and much-needed answer to prayer. I’ll do my best to post mine soon. Next step – a Kindle edition! Continuing to pray for your latest book – and looking forward to the announcement!

      You are too kind, Don–thanks. And thanks for your willingness to write the Coach Your Champions review! Yes, I need to have our gang check into a Kindle edition.

      Oh–and everything is on track with the new book. We’re looking at an early February publication date. I’ll keep ya posted.
