9781514367544: Fundraising Strategies: Stories from the Field Inspired by St. Vincent de Paul

Princess Diana, compost, rejects, iHobo, UBITs and other stories based on expertise and insights from experts. More than 1500 books about Vincent exist, but none like this. More than 250 organizations founded or inspired by Vincent exist today, 400 years after he lived. Why is that? We are all Vincentians if we work for the poor, even if we don’t know it! Faith-based organizations need to know the gems of wisdom within this book. Vincent dedicated his life to relieving the conditions of the poor wherever he found them—in the streets, in prisons, on his doorstep—and asking the quintessential question: “Something must be done; what must I do?” Ask yourself, “Do I need to read a book on fundraising?” The answer is, “Yes—this one.” Two reasons for reading: first is the wisdom and practical tips herein are time-tested. How much time? Nearly 400 years. The authors demonstrate the leadership legacy of St. Vincent de Paul (1581–1660), the Patron Saint of Charity. His organizational and management brilliance inspired new organizations and thousands in service. Vincent said, “The poor suffer less from a lack of generosity than from a lack of organization.” He set about to fix that by organizing the first systematic approaches to social service. Second, you will be inspired by what you read here to recommit yourself to the work you do—to serve and to create your own legacy. You will find never-before-told stories of Vincentian organizations around the world, led by people who follow Vincent’s maxim: “It is not enough to do good, it must be done well.”
