What Works in Fundraising: Pittsburgh

Stopped at a red light with Major Donors?

A man in a blue Honda Civic stops at a red light. His gaze focuses forward as he tries to avert his eyes from the woman standing on the corner just a few feet away. While driving up to the light, he sees that the woman holds a sign. It says, “Please, help me feed my children.” Now, through his tinted sunglasses he glances out of the side of his eye and sees this desperate, exhausted, hopeless woman staring back at him. What will he do? He has two options—continue to ignore the woman or take action. Maybe his action step is to hand her a card with the information of a rescue mission. Now is the time to create advocates, not just donors. “Gospel-centered rescue missions are changing lives by changing lives, says Jerry Grimes, Advocace Vice President. When you help a person who is downtrodden or homeless…you are doing it in the name of Jesus Christ. When you turn their lives around and they’re transformed, their life change story can change someone else’s life when you share it. So, people in the community c ...

Is your board onboard with fundraising?

Many rescue mission leaders find it difficult to get their board to take action in fundraising. Advocace’s Rescue Mission Development Outlook Study discovered ways that rescue missions and other ministries are getting their boards involved in key aspects of the ministry—like fundraising. This free, 30-minute webinar will also discuss how to develop a major donor program and how to effectively fundraise, even without a development director. Raising Board Fundraising Standards Advocace’s Vice President, Jerry Grimes, says, “When you hire a consultant, they can come in from the outside and help create an expectation that a board member’s personal giving and a board fundraising goal for your annual fund is part of their role.” Join Advocace on Thursday, May 15 at Noon (CST) as Jeff Crabtree and Jerry Grimes discuss key findings from this study that can help rescue missions grow!
