The "Poor Pitiful Us" Appeal (w/ Mike Ward, CFRE)

This week Mitzie Schafer from NovusWay and Mike Ward from GSB Fundraising talk about congregations and non-profits using the "Poor Pitiful Us" appeal during these times, and how instead to appeal to your members' and donors' desire to make an impact in the world. You will hear about:

  1. Why do people give to your church or organization? 
  2. IF and WHEN you should play the Poor Pitiful Us Card.
  3. How should you play the card? 

Mike Ward's new book, Abundance: Creating a Culture of Generosity, can be purchased here.

Mike will be leading a Congregational Vitality retreat at Lutheranch this fall, November 13-15, 2020. Click here to learn more and register.
