2021 Spring Fundraiser
Your Small Donation Makes a Big Difference!
Since we started offering free Bible studies in 2017, we have delivered more than 50,000 to inboxes worldwide. And we simply could not have done it without the faithful financial support of people like you.
Demand for our free studies skyrocketed in the past year due to the Covid-19 restrictions. In fact, we had more than 10,000 new subscribers join our Bible study community in 2020. Sadly, we lost 40% of our recurring donors and approximately $500 in monthly income during the same timeframe.
We were not surprised to see attrition in our recurring gifts in this economy, but that doesn’t mean that we can allow this trend to continue without action on our part.
In 2020, we just barely met this 33% threshold. To maintain our non-profit status, we must actively seek out new donors who are willing to invest a small amount in our organization each year.
Although we are immensely grateful for our major donors, what we really need is an army of people who are willing to join our Discipleship Team and invest just $10, $20, or $30 a month in our free Bible study ministry.
If just 10% of our readers donated $10+ per month to this ministry, 100% of our financial needs would be met.
Also, by engaging an army of small individual donors we are creating a sustainable fundraising model and securing our future as a 501(c)3 organization.
During our Spring Fundraiser (May 4-24, 2021), we hope to engage 40 new recurring donors and an additional $500 per month in funding ($6000 per year) to recuperate the losses we experienced this past year.
I am pleased to announce that we have secured another $3,000 Fish and Loaves Grant to help us in our efforts to cultivate new monthly donors for Living by Design Ministries.
- A pledge for $10 a month generates $24 in grant money.
- A pledge for $20 a month generates $48 in grant money.
- A pledge for $30+ a month generates $96 in grant money.
And the best part is that the grant money will be paid at the end of May!
As a small non-profit ministry, we are fully dependent on the free-will donations of our community members. Without the financial support of our Bible study community, we cannot continue our work.
Will you prayerfully consider becoming a financial partner in our mission to deliver free Bible studies to inboxes around the world?
