Fundraising has always been an essential element of the Christian life: churches, schools, and many other organizations rely on it to function. But it is a risky enterprise, fraught with questions and challenges. How can Christians raise funds with integrity?

In this book Peter Harris and Rod Wilson, experienced fundraisers themselves, bring fundraising within the scope of normal Christian life and work. They consider fundraising in light of the relationships that lie at its heart - with God, with creation, and with ourselves.

After first laying a biblical foundation by discussing 2 Corinthians 8-9, Harris and Wilson develop seven themes central to the giving and receiving of money: integration, people, work, success, need, method, and money. In a final section, the authors offer their own personal experiences, questions, suggestions, and valuable insights that they have gained from their many years of fundraising as Christians.


"Rod Wilson and Peter Harris are two well-trained and practiced companions on the journey of enabling the Christian community to carry on its ministry faithfully. Their Keeping Faith in Fundraising is both accurate in its emphasis and motivational in its focus. It draws our attention to the centrality of our common mission as brothers and sisters to both give and receive money in a way that reflects Jesus."
- Eugene Peterson, author of The Message
