How Your Nonprofit Can Engage With PovertyCure

The dynamic PovertyCure Video Series has been used by nonprofit organizations around the world. Through watching the series, your organization will gain a solid theological, economic, and philosophical understanding of the complex issues surrounding poverty.

Here are just a few specific ways your organization can leverage the series in order to more effectively advance its mission:

  • Staff & Volunteer Training: Many nonprofits have used the series as a part of their training programs, ensuring their staff’s view of poverty aligns with the approach of the organization. Additionally, nonprofits have used the series and the ReThink Missions Toolkit in order to train volunteers who are about to go on a mission or vision trip with them.

  • Constituent Engagement: All nonprofits understand the importance of continually engaging their supporters and church partners. The Video Series provides nonprofits with a powerful tool to help them maintain and build their relationship with existing constituents, and effectively explain why the organization’s work is so critical.

  • Development Tool: Various nonprofits have leveraged the Video Series in order to effectively develop new donor relationships, whether they be with individuals or whole churches. Small screening parties with potential donors and Lunch-N-Learn events with prospective partners are just two examples of how the series has been used to further nonprofits' development goals.

What Nonprofits Are Saying About PovertyCure:

“…An Amazing Journey around the world calling Christians of all fellowships to cultivate not only a heart for the poor, but a mind for the poor."

-    Brian Fikkert, President of the Chalmers Center & Best-Selling Author of When Helping Hurts

“At COTN, we host PovertyCure screenings and workshops for our partner churches before they leave on mission trips to our host countries. The principles in the PovertyCure series has encouraged our teams to have healthier interactions with our children and families while they are in country.

…We host PovertyCure screenings with our national staff in our host countries. Because of the global diversity in the film, our local staff has been able to identify the challenges of living in an aid-based society as well as some of the opportunities they can implement to overcome those challenges.” 

– Cheryl Cuthbertson, International Director of Sustainability, Children of the Nations
