Our Unique Approach
Youâ€™ve probably heard the terms â€ślegacy givingâ€ť and â€śEstate planningâ€ť â€“ topics that often include confusing, legal jargon. At Money for Ministry, our goal is to communicate these topics in a simple and compelling way â€” educating the average donor on how giving a gift in their Will honors God.
We believe â€śleaving a legacyâ€ť is much more than a legal transaction â€“ for many itâ€™s an act of worship â€” an expression of good stewardship and a powerful way for donors to communicate what they hold most dear â€“ their commitment to Christ and to the work of your ministry.
What Our Clients Are Saying
[Money for Ministry] takes us on a journey whereby our donors can see benefit in legacy giving... we love their multi-channel approach so that literally everything that we produce talks about legacy giving... the stories that are created are impactful.
What we enjoy most is the "hands-off" nature of Money for Ministry's services.Â Itâ€™s so simple and easily distributed to our donors.Â We do very little!
[The materials] talk about impact, legacy, and stewardship â€“ and less about designating money. Donors find the language refreshing and thought-provoking. We like it because itâ€™s a better description of a Biblical view of estate planning.
[Money for Ministry] has a vast knowledge of planned giving and brings added value to any planned giving program no matter their level of sophistication with his multi-channel marketing system.
We are extremely pleased with Mikeâ€™s transformational messaging and the results we have seen from our broad-based cultivation of legacy prospects.

We are so grateful to Money for Ministry for helping us get the planned giving conversation started with our donors. Because of your work, our donors are now thinking about leaving legacy gifts to our ministry and committing to do so. We really appreciate how easy the whole process has been on our end. We have a lot on our plates in our small development office, and it's been great to know that, because of Money for Ministry, our donors are receiving timely follow-up and attention as they engage with us about planned giving. Thank you for all you have done for us!
You have encouraged and pushed us on to the righteous activity of gratitude and care, thanking and praying with our donors. The more that we can as a staff show Christ's love in this manner, the better!
We have really enjoyed the opportunity to engage in the 'idea generation' over family, stewardship content that is produced. This makes for a better product as Money for Ministry listens to our donors and our reps and then produces solid biblical content that speaks to others in similar situations.
We have enjoyed the fact that you actually offer so many services all under one roof. Our team has become more aware of the ways we can communicate with and appreciate some of our donors who might have fallen through the cracks, and offer a service to our donors as opposed to our relationship with them being a one way street. We believe that God directed us to Money for Ministry and your team. Thank you for all you have done to help us grow.
We have enjoyed seeing people respond like this! They are answering the survey and letting us know why they give. These are important stories, and now we have them!
We love your heart for our ministry to our donors - they are people with dreams not targets for money.
Money for Ministry employs a proven strategy and keeps us on track; Â we are not just left alone. You have great customer service and are always available. And we like the fact that you always keep us focused on the ministry of what we are doing.
We love this program! This is the greatest tool to stay in touch with committed donors. It's a process that works. In all our years of doing development we have never run against a program that did so much good.
Your team has been very responsive to our questions of clarification and schedule adjustment. Your faith and family message sets you apart from other planned giving growth programs; and the flexibility in scheduling the messages. Since we plan so far out, it is nice to have the messaging waiting in the wings for the next delivery method.
We appreciate how you keep in touch and stay on top of what we do. We also appreciate that you make sure we do what we say we will do. Your team has acted professionally and sincerely.
The most appealing feature of your program is the Integrated Strategy Development. This plan gives us a clear step-by-step process for our staff in connection with potential prospects - we really like that it is a permissions-based process.
We believe you are more aligned with our faith-based approach to relationships than any others that we spoke with. This resonated deeply with us.
We really appreciateÂ that you are biblically based,Â your teamâ€™s ability to listen and absorb information, and thatÂ you are flexible and have a willingness to teach and guide.Â Loved your counsel to 'lead with Inspiration, follow with Information!'
In a relatively short period of time, this program has accomplished what would have required additional staff and numerous hours for us to accomplish.Â The reasonable fee for MFM services far outweigh the cost of paying salaries and benefits for additional staff.Â Because of the constant demand for raising operational funds, MFM has moved our estate design activity from constantly being put on a back burner to one of our front burners.
We enjoy your team the most, we feel supported and encouraged when we meet and appreciate the attention to detail and follow through of your whole team.Â The process of prospect development, while sometimes challenging to integrate with our organizational culture, has been fruitful and we can see the benefit.
The survey is a great way to open conversations with folks on their terms.Â Also the data reporting is great.Â We can really see how the program is effective in helping folks make decisions.
