Kitchen Table Giving: Reimagining How Congregations Connect with their Donors


book
by William G. Enright. CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017.

Today’s donors have more giving options than ever before. What can congregations do to garner the support they need? This book from a faith and giving expert urges leaders to make fundraising “more about ministry than it is about money.” As the title suggests, decisions about charitable giving are made at the “kitchen table”, not in the pew. Effective leaders recognize this and act accordingly. Enright shares other things he has learned. For example, people respond to a joyful rather than a duty-bound approach to giving. (Think “grace”, he advises.) They entrust their resources to institutions and leaders they consider reliable. And they invest in ministry that aligns with their values and beliefs. A “Table Talk” study and action guide is included at the end of each chapter. The author’s blog offers practical applications at {{kitchentablegiving.com | http://www.kitchentablegiving.com/ }}. Pastors and other leaders will be encouraged by this fresh and practical perspective.
