According to the U.S. Census, there were 308.7 million people living in the United States in 2010.
Wouldn't it be great if every one of those people both donated their time and money to your church or non-profit organization?
Of course it would. But get real. That isn't going to happen anytime soon.
All churches and non-profit organizations are being affected in one way or another by both economic climate and government cutbacks. In addition, many other factors affect community involvement, such as employment, inflation and rises in both fuel and utility costs.
