CARMEL, N.Y.,June 21 — Guideposts, the non-profit organization dedicated to providing hope, encouragement, and inspiration to millions across America and the world, announces a new initiative called the Guideposts Church Fundraising Program. Launched today, the new program is designed to provide churches with a unique approach for raising money for their outreach ministries through the sale of faith-filled products.

The Guideposts Church Fundraising Program is based on churches offering Guideposts magazines and books for sale to church members, friends and family.  Participating churches have no upfront costs, products to inventory or deliveries to worry about.  They will also keep  50 percent of all sales.

"The Guideposts Church Fundraising Program is a simple concept, but it’s about more than just money.  It’s about ministry helping ministry.  When a church partners with us to raise money for their ministry, they can take comfort in knowing that we are a non-profit organization with outreach ministries as well.  Ministries that support millions of people such as our prayer network, the free distribution of our inspirational products to those in need and other outreach programs. Combined with our  magazines and books that strengthen people’s relationships with family, community, and God, our goal is to inspire fundraising success," said Michele Ju, spokesperson, Guideposts Church Fundraising Program.
