Imagining Abundance: Fundraising, Philanthropy, and a Spiritual Call to Service




author/Kerry Alys Robinson

Fundraising is ministry--a transformative ministry that challenges all people to realize their own gifts and how they can be used for the benefit of the church. In Imagining Abundance, Kerry Robinson focuses on reasons why each of us are called to be stewards. We act because we're excited about what it is that we do for the church and where we're called by God to be, we want others to be just as excited about what that is, and we want people to be partners with us in that ministry.In Imagining Abundance, Kerry Robinson offers an inspirational and practical guide to effective fundraising that is ideal for anyone invested in a faith community. Bishops, provincials, pastors, ministers, executive and development directors and trustees of faith-based organizations will benefit from this healthy approach to the activity of fundraising that situates successful development in the context of ministry and mission.

"Pope Francis tells us that there is only one mission and it is Jesus' mission. Kerry calls us to live that mission with great hope, enthusiasm, and joy in abundance. Everyone involved in development should read Imagining Abundance. It would be a perfect gift to share with a board of directors or trustees. It is well worth the read, but more importantly worth the conversations and ideas it will inspire."  -- Sr. Georgette Lehmuth, OSF, President and CEO, National Catholic Development Conference
