Beyond Fundraising:

A Complete Guide to Congregational Stewardship

by Wayne B. Clark, Ph. D.

BeyondFundraising1Beyond Fundraising moves congregations from a myth of scarcity to a culture that welcomes, and even expects, a focus on the reality of abundance. Clark suggests that we diminish our emphasis on money by putting fundraising under the umbrella of spiritual stewardship. Beyond Fundraising introduces a new and comprehensive stewardship development program called Forward Through the Ages (FORTH) that puts money in perspective by making it one of five components of stewardship development: stewardship education; joyful giving; ministry and good works; annual budget drive; and planned giving.


Beyond Fundraising has everything your congregation needs to know about successful and meaningful stewardship. This invaluable resource is a must read for every finance and stewardship committee, perhaps the only book you will ever need on the subject. I will definitely recommend it to my own congregation!”

Harold E. Babcock, Minister, First Religious Society, Unitarian Universalist, Newburyport, Massachusetts

“Grounded in his own experience as a widely respected and successful fundraising consultant, and inspired by real vision rather than just wishful thinking, Clark presents a comprehensive stewardship strategy that will work for all congregations, irrespective of their size, composition or location.”

Stefan M. Jonasson, UUA Director for Large Congregations

Beyond Fundraising will be the essential manual for congregational leaders embracing a change in their stewardship culture. . . . Every board and finance committee member in my congregation will be receiving a copy.”

Naomi King, Minister, Unitarian Universalist Church, Utica, New York
