Fundraising for Social Change
Before I get into today’s blog post, I want to lament what happened in Buffalo, NY this past weekend. Yet again, a mass shooting. Yet again, targeting people of color. Ten precious lives lost. I know that you mourn too. But it can’t just stop at mourning. Our congregations must start stepping out and speaking up against White supremacy and Christian nationalism. Write, march, read, hold prayer services. Do something more than just feel bad. You will be empowered and your actions will let our BIPOC brothers and sisters know that they are not alone. As the National Holocaust Museum declares: What you do matters.
Now…on to today’s post:
Cesie Delve Scheuermann (pronounced “CC Delv Sherman,” yes, really) is a consultant in stewardship, development, and grant writing. For 25 years, while working as a volunteer and part-time consultant, she has helped raise over three million dollars for numerous non-profit organizations. She encourages you to listen to Edmonds UMC’s version of “We Will Make No Peace.” Beautiful and compelling, especially this week.
