Transformational Giving

Transformational Giving always begins with the acknowledgment of Jesus’ words found in Acts 20:35: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” The community that is then created between nonprofits and their champions begins with love for others, faith in God’s provision and a willingness to be led by the Holy Spirit. Transformational Giving is a response to God’s grace that results in an “overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God” (2 Corinthians 9:12).These principles are intended to serve as a tether to the Bible’s teaching and reminder of the abundance of God and the truth that fundraising is ministry.
  1. Transformational Giving is based on the abundance and trustworthiness of God, not a theology of scarcity.
  2. Every act of giving is first and foremost a statement about the faithfulness of God.
  3. God invites people to be part of His work because of His desire to see them grow in Him.
  4. Giving time, talent, treasure and testimony is a result of champions being comprehensively coached in the cause.
  5. Ministry leaders have a dual calling to steward the mission and grow the people God brings.
  6. The liberating nature of generosity means inviting champions to give is a sacred task that grows God’s kingdom.
  7. Ministry leaders coach champions according to the degree of their personal ownership in the cause.
  8. Champions connect with organizations primarily to enhance their mutual impact on the cause.
  9. The relationship between champion and champion is as important as the relationship between champion and organization.
  10. Champions are called to be a primary means of advancing the cause.

Personal Growth

Transformational giving is a philosophy that assists personal growth and discipleship. Mission Increase serves ministries by developing ministry leaders spiritually.

Developing Champions

Transformational giving is a philosophy that assists personal growth and discipleship. Ministries don’t just receive money from donors, they invest in the development of champions for the cause and work.

Staying Connected

As Christ followers, we are members of local churches. Transformational giving is part of basic discipleship, and we partner with churches to serve local ministries and provide church members with practical ways to be involved in what God is doing across the country and around the world.

We Provide You With a Fundraising Coach

Mission Increase Area Directors (Ads) are fundraising coaches and fellow ministry leaders, embedded with a local community across the country who know what it feels to be a fundraiser. They understand the frustrations and struggles that can come with the work and believe that no one should have to experience fundraising as an obligation, rather it can be an opportunity.

For over 20 years, our team of skillful and trained ADs have walked alongside thousands of ministry leaders just like you; guiding and equipping them with the practical skills and biblically-based Transformational Giving principles to not only raise more money, but have more impact, and grow the people God brought their organization.
