Church Giving Down:Crowdfunding Can Help?

If giving has slowed down, then what options do churches have to raise funds for other key projects; like missions, youth camp, etc? • Car Washes • Bake Sales • Dinners • Auctions • Garage Sales • Coupon books Sure, these are the most commonly used and have been used for years with some degree of success. It’s not to say that these can’t be good options but the reality is that they do not usually generate enough funds to put much of a dent in what’s needed putting churches reliant on big donors.

How about leveraging crowdfunding? With the pace that technology/media is ever changing churches really have two choices; adapt or “try” and ignore it. Those who embrace these new online mediums can see great blessings but those who choose to ignore them unfortunately can limit their ministry. After all, technology just like anything else is merely a tool that if used properly can be an effective instrument for the Lord. Okay you got my attention, but what is crowdfunding you might ask?

Crowdfunding can be defined as a group of people with similar values coming together to support projects in exchange for rewards. Therefore funding a project with the help of a crowd of smaller donations vs. one or two from large donors. Crowdfunding is fundraising that gives back to the crowd who supported you. Is this a conflict for churches? It doesn’t have to be; after all our Heavenly father rewards us as well. God wired us in such away that incentives motivate us to take action. Crowdfunding for churches therefore although a new concept can be highly effective. It can serve as an alternative church fundraising tool for congregations of any size; all it requires is faith and some creativity.

Fortunately, there are platforms like LADA Crowdfunding who cater to Christian crowdfunding projects. Therefore, giving ministry staff some peace of mine knowing that they are using a tool that understands their mission and shares their core beliefs. So why are churches maybe more reluctant and/or hesitant than others to embrace these new media/technology trends and what can providers do to help?

DO YOU HAVE A ELECTRONIC MONEY PORTFOLIO?

WHAT IS A ELECTRONIC MONEY PORTFOLIO?
The term portfolio refers to any collection of financial assets such as stocks, bonds and cash. Portfolios may be held by individual investors and/or managed by financial professionals, hedge funds, banks and other financial institutions.

It is a generally accepted principle that a portfolio is designed according to the investor’s risk tolerance, time frame and investment objectives. The dollar amount of each asset may influence the risk/reward ratio of the portfolio and is referred to as the asset allocation of the portfolio

With inflation on the way up, the cost of living always going up and the general economy going down, a lot of people are looking to get involved

With continued quantitative easing, i.e., printing paper money, world fiat currencies continue to lose their purchasing power.

The world over, here’s what’s going on:
People are losing their homes through foreclosures
People are losing their jobs through downsizing
People are filing for bankruptcy
Business are shutting down
People are losing their hard-earned savings and investments on the world stock markets

Gold and silver have been used as money for thousands of years.

The majority of global economies use debt-based currencies, so a true hedge against inflation becomes necessary. This is because, all debt-based currencies lose their value with each year.

Need some Electronic Money….Use LADA Groups Economic System

Lada Hedge Fund for Electronic Money…What is it?


There’s a lot of talk these days about the coming cashless society and electronic money being the next step in our monetary evolution. Is it true, and if so, what will it mean to you and your family?

First of all, did you know that today 91 % of all financial transactions are already electronic? The computer revolution is gradually replacing the need for any cash or currency at all. The reasons are simple: E-Money is more convenient, faster, and cheaper than paper currencies — but what should we as Christians make of this?

E-Money is the final step toward abstract money and away from tangible money. Technology can be harnessed for both good and evil. The question is, does E-Money line up with the Word of God? The answer is only if it is based on a just weight and measure and is redeemable in something of substance, like gold or silver. Today the only substance backing E-money, or any other currency is FAITH. Faith in the ungodly credit/debt system. E-Money is helping to promote the New World Order goal of more government control, less financial freedom, and no privacy. The only way to convince citizens that this is in their best interest is to offer perks, like banking from home, lower fees, etc. But there is always a price for convenience.

Over the next 20 years E-Money will gradually replace the need for banks, checks, and even cash, according to Newsweek magazine. The internet offers the perfect vehicle to see the One World Order currency that globalizes have dreamed of for decades finally become a reality. But my question is: “Why can’t Christians support E-Money which is backed by gold, silver or even wheat?” Rather than just sitting back and watching the whole world fall for a lie, we must stand for the truth. Economic truth is always based on God’s truth, and frankly, I’m tired of watching the devil enslave the world in a ungodly debt system that secretly steals the wealth of it citizens through inflation.

Do you know that, “the destiny of a currency determines the destiny of a nation.” While it is true that we Christians cannot stand in the way of legitimate progress in our society, we must stand against unbiblical, unconstitutional assault against our family that occurs as a result of both ignorance and indifference regarding the future of our money.

God truly wants you to be a blessing to other people during these bad economic times. God wants us to be helpers to One Another By sharing with them the The Lada Group, a Cash Leveraging, Cash Flow System. http://sixplusone7.com/listing/lada-group-hedge-fund/

How Cash Keeps Poor People Poor

Want to help the poor? Start by taking money out of their hands. More specifically, cash, coins and paper bills are the silent enemy of the poor, with costs often out of proportion with their day-to-day convenience.

On one level, it’s ridiculous to think of cash as problematic; if you have a mountain of paper money, you aren’t exactly impoverished. And at times cash seems like exactly what we need. Saying “yes” to cash can seem like saying “no” to overspending and steering clear of big banks, which means saying “no” debt, overdraft fees and Big Brother. In the age of zeroes-happy bank bailouts cash stands for individual empowerment and no-nonsense finances.

The irony of this line of thinking is that most of the people espousing the virtues of cash simultaneously enjoy the safety and cost savings of electronic money. Even those who usually have bank accounts, receive payments via auto deposit, use stored-value cards for public transit and more likely than not pay their rent or mortgage, utilities, medical expenses, Internet service, hotel bills and auto insurance by transferring sequences of 1s and 0s between faraway computers. Click. Sure, you may still need a bill or two now and then for the Salvation Army Santa, waiters and bellhops. But for the most part, the better off you are, the less you need cash — and the easier it is to avoid it.

In contrast, the poor — tens of millions in the U.S. and billions of people worldwide — often have no option but cash, and pay dearly because of it. In a recent piece for Foreign Policy, Vishnu Sridharan of the New America Foundation writes that cash-based economies “harm the poor by heightening the risks they face when carrying money and fueling government corruption and inefficiency.” Imagine literally having your life savings under your mattress or folded into a coffee can, vulnerable to fire, thieves, drunken relatives or nagging neighbors. Imagine having to ride the bus for hours to settle a bill, or traveling for days to deliver funds to a relative. Your already fragile finances can also get hammered by outrageous fees charged by check-cashing services or astronomical interest rates levied .

Psychologists will tell you that we are more careful with our money when operating in cash because forking over those funds is a more salient experience than swiping a debit card. But for the poor, especially in the developing world, it’s the opposite: cash gets spent. That makes it harder to buttress against financial shock and save enough to reach solid financial footing. In some parts of the world, people actually pay local strongmen to safeguard their money because having cash on hand is so precarious. Think about that: not even Wall Street bankers charge you to stash your money in a savings account (not yet, anyway). 

Millions of people on the margins often tumble back into poverty because of sudden setbacks — major illness or natural disaster, for instance — but just as often they are small-scale financial disturbances like a sprained ankle, or a broken-down moped, which prevents you from commuting to work. Even if you’re managing to get by, a cash-only economic existence makes it difficult to save for long-term investments such as education, job training or farm equipment to break the cycle of poverty.

So what’s the solution? You probably have one in your pocket. By 2014, about 90% of all adults in the world will have a mobile phone companies have already shown that you don’t need the latest, flashiest model to send and receive money as easily as a text message and that you can remotely — and securely — access a bank account from the cheapest sort of handheld. Mobile technology will enable the poor to keep their money in the same form that you keep most of your money: digital. Not tomorrow, but soon enough, passing someone a bunch of banknotes or a clinking handful of coins will seem as dated as using a pay phone.

Digital money and mobile technology alone won’t end poverty, obviously. But as Rodger Voorhies of financial services for the poor at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, writes, innovations in these areas “hold the promise to increase transparency, improve financial access and help low income people get out of poverty and stay out of poverty.” If we can turn into the wallet and bank branch of tomorrow, we may end up doing more to combat poverty than cash donations ever could.
