Fundraising Creates a Community of Love

“Indeed, if we raise funds for the creation of a community love, we are helping God build the kingdom.” (Nouwen, p. 25)

Fundraising as an activator of generosity helps create a community of love both in and beyond this world. Fundraising is an act of love. Generosity is an act of love.  Together they empower a community of love that is great that today and will be greater tomorrow than perhaps we can imagine. As the creator of a community of love, fundraising is a holy activity.
