Churches and Other Ministries
Fundraising is, first and foremost, a form of ministry. It is a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission.
—Henri Nouwen, The Spirituality of Fundraising
MMS Advancement Associates LLC understands the special nature of spiritually-driven, faith-based organizations and shares a passion for changing lives through the power of worshiping and caring communities. Because of our deep understanding and involvement with faith-based organizations, we develop tailored fundraising solutions that help you build facilities and programs to strengthen your ministry.
Because our consultants have worked with a wide range of churches and caring ministries with ties to various denominations, we understand how faith-based organizations are both fundamentally different from yet similar to other nonprofits. Our approach recognizes the unique characteristics and needs of every church and ministry that we serve. At the same time, we bring an understanding of how churches and faith-based organizations can apply proven techniques of successful fund development.
MMS Advancement Associates LLC emphasizes the importance of educating and engaging your members and volunteers throughout the fundraising process. We serve as coaches, working side by side with your staff, board or consistory, and volunteers to increase skills and confidence so that you can meet your fundraising goals. We strive to help you develop fundraising practices and an attitude of abundance and philanthropy that will lead to long-term sustainability for your organization.
