We’re encouraging churches and CMSI supporters to host a community fundraising event for CMSI once a year.
Why host a fundraising event?
Fundraising events help bring people together; they offer a chance to celebrate and develop the sense of community in your church; they draw folk together from the wider neighbourhood; they create a ‘buzz’.
A big parish event provides an opportunity to help share your vision of mission – to inform the church community about a particular partnership link or inspire them about global mission more generally. You could even invite a CMSI speaker to come along.
CMSI needs to increase support for its Mission Resource Fund. We’re immensely grateful for – and reliant upon – the annual disbursements from churches towards this fund. A community event is a great way to raise additional funds for CMSI from your parishioners, without drawing more from church funds.
