Testimonials about How to be Happy Giving Your Money Away
Comments from Church Leaders Who Have Used Dr. E. M. Clark’s Book on Fundraising
Dr. Richard D. Dobbins, Founder
EMERGE Ministries, Inc.
While seeking God for direction to take for the capital campaign, we received a copy of E.M. Clark’s book How to Be Happy Giving Your Money Away. When I read this book, which outlines procedures, presents personal testimonies, and inspires faith, I knew this was the direction God was leading us to proceed. So I purchased copies for our board and staff to read. The board members were so inspired by this book that we ordered 1,500 more to give to the families of our congregation. The reaction to the book by the congregation was amazing. Person after person called the office and wanted to know how soon they could start giving. We raised over $3,000,000 in one-year pledges. In addition, our offerings have grown considerably…

Dr. Clark writes with a pen tempered by his experience as a church leader for over six decades. Known among his peers as one who has a contagious kind of faith, Dr. Clark is recognized as a leading voice in church development with a specialty in the ‘how’ of financial stewardship. This book is the result of his years of experience and brings a resolve to the financial needs of the church with his practical, but effective, understanding of the cause and result process.
M. Wayne Benson, Board Chair and President
This book could change your ministry. The principles we have learned from Dr. Clark have not only helped our church raise money to purchase land and construct a building, but they have resulted in a dramatic increase in our regular giving.
