NPO | Who says pastors are not fund-raisers?

Southern California is abuzz with this report of the hugely generous response of the Saddleback Church to a disparate year-end appeal for money from Pastor Rick Warren. There is an old adage about fund-raising: Two principles apply for fund-raising success and these are 1) You must have the correct TIMING and 2) You must have PRESENCE. If you have the latter, then you know the timing. Congratulations to the Saddleback congregation for their great success!
“I wasn’t surprised by this offering, as Saddleback is famous for radical generosity,” Warren said during (2 Jan 2010) service. " Warren represented the total with a display that included 24 parishioners rising to represent $100,000 each, said spokeswoman Kristin Cole. Virtually all of the individual donations were for less than $1,000, according to the church, she added. More donations remain to be counted.
