Why Your Recurring Giving Matters

A stranger asked me the other day about our ministry after seeing the plaque on my car with The Prisoners Hope name/logo. Those of you who know me, know I like to talk to everyone (especially about what The Prisoners Hope does!) so a fairly long conversation ensued. After hearing what we did, he asked, "How do you support the work that you say often requires 1 or more years of working with incarcerated persons and their families?" My reply was that like most non-profits, we raise funds throughout the year from various sources – appealing to churches, individuals, foundations and conducting events and fundraising drives. He then surprised me by astutely replying, "I imagine that your funds don't always flow in smoothly from month-to-month, do they?" No they don't, I said.

Yes - this is the issue most non-profits face – uneven incoming revenues, but steady outflows of cash. If only it were different. What would a steady and predictable stream of income mean to The Prisoners Hope? It would mean that we could spend less time on fundraising projects, administration and planning/conducting events and more time connecting to our mission of serving our mentees and their families. And for you, our donor partners, smaller, regular giving can often be easier to accommodate in your budget, as well. Thus a win-win for everyone! So for 2018, we want to do something to smooth out the ups and downs of monthly revenue.

We have created the "18 in 18" Challenge". It is an easy and hassle free way for you to participate with a monthly donation of only $18. As a bonus, sign up before April 15 and our generous partner Go Ministries will match your first month's donation.
