Over the past 1.5 years we have posted a variety of blog posts about different things… Vision, Patriotism, Holidays, etc. Today we are starting a new effort…

Join Us! The Youth Fundraising Blog

Today we will start with a few things:

  1. Why the name Join Us?

  2. What to expect in the posts!

  3. How often we will post

Let’s get started with the name… On September 16, 1992, Henri J.M. Nouwen gave a talk about fundraising – Captured in the book Spirituality of Fundraising

Fundraising is proclaiming what we believe in such a way that we offer other people an opportunity to participate with us in our vision and mission.
— Henri J.M. Nouwen

Fundraising should be an invitation to join you in your vision and mission. This is not a take only process it should be a partnership. A long term relationship is much more beneficial to you, them, and your organization!

What to expect in these posts… The majority of the posts on this page will be shorter and contain information about youth fundraising. These topics will include marketing, sales, and choosing the best fundraiser for your group, just to name a few. We will also be throwing in a few other topics about our business journey, articles we believe are helpful, and other topics that we believe you will enjoy. We will try to tag these with a hashtag of their topics (#moviereview, #thejourney, #greatarticle, etc.)

How often??? We are going to try to be consistent with posting once or twice a week. We are all busy, but we will be brief and keep it to less than 3 min read.

As always we appreciate you Joining Us! (see what I did there!) for this journey and please, please comment to give us questions you have about youth fundraising! We would be happy to research and find out the answers for you!

We have a vision that is amazing and exciting. We are inviting you to invest yourself through the resources that God has given you—your energy, your prayers, and your money—in this work to which God has called us.
— Henri J.M. Nouwen

Have a great week and we look forward to helping you become more successful in your youth fundraising!

PS - Remember, Fundraising is an invitation…
