Sustainability – Part II

Sustainability is a hot topic with many nonprofits. Some ministries are 100% dependent upon donations while others have their revenue coming predominantly from fee income.

God may want some to cling to Him, making them donation dependent, while others, like my friends at Kingdom Advisors, who also rely on God, depend on fee income.

Kingdom Advisors once tried a donation-only model with devastating consequences. Subsequently, they developed a fee based model that became very fruitful.

Colossians 2:8 teaches, “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”

Whether nonprofits are funded by donations or by fee income, God should direct, and be, ourultimate sustainable model.
