Your Generous Financial Support Makes a Difference in the World
Why Do Religious and Spiritual Organizations Always Ask For Money?
We support the ministries of Blackbirds Rising with faithful giving. Our organization is dependent on the generosity of those who find spiritual sustenance, guidance and support here. The more we give, the more Blackbirds Rising can achieve in the critical task of rising the consciousness of all who are called to learn how. And, obviously, the more we contribute to the health of the organization, the more the organization will be able to be a supportive presence in our own lives.
The truth is, virtual spiritual organizations today, like the churches and centers that have come before us, represent spiritual communities that work together, play together, pray together, dream together and support the shared vision of reaching more and more people with a message of hope and healing. So the Blackbirds Rising community, connecting the world together in ways not imagined a just few short years ago, is US.
Blackbirds Rising can only be to us what we are to it. It can never be more than our volunteer efforts, positive attitudes and speech, and financial efforts make possible.
There may be fundraisers throughout the year to help support the ministries of the organization, and we can support the organization by remembering in our planned giving (our wills and/or life insurance policies), but the primary means is our regular giving and it is our giving that also adds joy to our own lives.
Of course we need every member and friend of the church to be as consistently generous as possible in order to do all that we feel passionate about doing in the world, but not only does the work of the organization need our gifts, we need to be the kind of people who are generous. As we intentionally build a culture of generosity and gratitude, we find ourselves growing spiritually and we discover that there is great joy in sharing.
