Practical insights and fundraising activities to get your ministry funded and flourishing.

As Missio Nexus engages with mission agency leaders, one of their greatest expressed needs is for fundraising and development training and tools. It has been said that the right activities lead to the right outcomes. We believe this to be true, but that begs the question, what are the right activities? In this book, you will discover what a few of these right fundraising and development activities are.

Fundraising experts collaborated with us to bring practical insights that will help you and your agencies. No matter what your knowledge or skill in fundraising are, this book and its content will help you improve as a ministry and as ministry leaders.
