On Fraudulent "Christian" Fundraising
I read an article a few days ago about the bleaker side of "Christian" fundraising--fake handwriting, ghostwriting, and all sorts of other manipulation (HT: SI). If I were on the outside of Christian ministry, I would be skeptical of it all, so I wanted to just make a few simple promises about DG's fundraising.
Here are some quotes from the article and how we would respond here at DG.
The fact is, the “personal” ministry letter you receive each month was probably not written by the ministry leader at all, but by a direct mail strategist, and designed by a graphic designer for maximum response.
There is no ghostwriting at Desiring God. If a person's name is on a document that means that they spent their own time, in front of their own keyboard, thinking their own thoughts, and writing the words you see on the page.
