www 15MinuteBusinessBooks com 2, Why is this book worth our time. 1 Robert Lupton the author is the founder of FCS Urban. Ministries and has 40 years of experience in urban. ministries In other words he has seen a lot of things tried. and he has seen what does not work and what has a, better chance of working in the poorest areas of the city. 2 We all want our efforts and our dollars to achieve the. effect we intend This book will help us think more clearly. about this challenge, 3 As much as anything this book reminds us that the. people we serve are not to be viewed as the people we. serve but as partners collaborators leaders in their own. communities In other words they have to be the, solution We are just helping in some way to help them. be become their own solution, And a word about the Christian emphasis in this book.
Robert Lupton approaches this challenge as a Christian. My goal is to provide for his work is ministry and he seeks to address the spiritual. caring people a checklist of needs of the people he serves from a Christian perspective. criteria they can use to But many of his findings are valuable and useful for anyone. determine which actions they seeking to serve human need whether they come at it from. should undertake when they a Christian perspective or some other perspective. want to help others, 1 What Americans avoid facing is that while we are very generous. in charitable giving much of that money is either wasted or. Here are some key quotes from actually harms the people it is targeted to help 31. the book 2 I have worked with churches government agencies. Note The s following each entrepreneurs and armies of volunteers and know from. quote indicate the Kindle App for firsthand experience the many ways good intentions can. translate into ineffective care or even harm 35, the iMac location of the quote. in the book 3 Almost 90 percent of American adults are involved personally or. financially in the charity industry, Today there s a compassion boom of people helping others. Unlike during difficult economic times in the past when. volunteerism declined charitable service today continues to. 4 more than 90 percent of Americans believe that it is important. to be personally involved in supporting a cause we believe in in. their communities and in the world at large 42, 5 The compassion industry is almost universally accepted as a. virtuous and constructive enterprise But what is so. surprising is that its outcomes are almost entirely. unexamined 47, 6 may be hurting more than helping How Dependency.
Destroying personal initiative When we do for those in need what. they have the capacity to do for themselves we disempower. Toxic Charity, www 15MinuteBusinessBooks com 3, 7 Country by country Africans are far worse off today than they were a half century ago Overall per capita income. is lower today than in the 1970s Over half of Africa s 700 million population lives on less than 1 a day 53. 8 For all our efforts to eliminate poverty our entitlements our programs our charities we have succeeded only. in creating a permanent underclass dismantling their family structures and eroding their ethic of work And our. poor continue to become poorer 57, 9 I continually witness profoundly broken systems in nonprofit work. And religiously motivated charity is often the most irresponsible. bruising the pride of residents who have the capacity and responsibility to beautify their own environments. 10 Giving to those in need what they could be gaining from their own initiative may well be the kindest way to. destroy people 69, 11 Why do we miss this crucial aspect in evaluating our charitable work Because as compassionate. people we have been evaluating our charity by the rewards we receive through service rather than the. benefits received by the served We have failed to adequately calculate the effects of our service on the. lives of those reduced to objects of our pity and patronage 71. 12 The money spent by one campus ministry to cover the costs of their Central American mission trip to repaint an. orphanage would have been sufficient to hire two local painters and two new full time teachers and purchase. new uniforms for every student in the school 78, 13 Our compassionate instinct has a serious shortcoming Our memory is short when recovery is long We respond. with immediacy to desperate circumstances but often are unable to shift from crisis relief to the more complex. work of long term development, When relief does not transition to development in a timely way compassion becomes toxic 93.
14 My goal is to provide for caring people a checklist of criteria they can use to determine which actions. they should undertake when they want to help others 106. 15 WHO WOULD FAULT THE MOTIVATION of compassionate people to help those in need Certainly not I It is not. motivation however that we are questioning but rather the unintended consequences of rightly motivated. efforts Negative outcomes seldom make it into the inspiring reports of service projects and mission trips 127. Princeton University conducted a study that found 1 6 million American church members took mission trips. abroad in 2005 an average of eight days long at a cost of 2 4 billion. Religious tourism as some call it has become a growth industry. The Bahamas it is estimated annually receives one short term missionary for every fifteen residents 167. 16 Service projects and mission trips do not effect lasting change Within six to eight weeks after a mission trip. most short term mission trippers return to the same assumptions and behaviors they had prior to the trip 174. 17 Most mission trips and service projects do not empower those being served engender healthy cross cultural. relationships improve local quality of life relieve poverty change the lives of participants increase support for. long term mission work Contrary to popular belief most mission trips and service projects do weaken those. being served foster dishonest relationships erode recipients work ethic deepen dependency 176. Some Christians argue that short term service trips whet the appetite for long term mission involvement. Research however does not support this claim 185, 18 Most work done by volunteers could be better done by locals in less time and with better results 189. 19 But responsible development efforts are sometimes thwarted by well meaning missioners who have little. understanding of the negative impacts of their good deeds 208. 20 People say Why should we borrow money when the churches give it to us 234. 21 But because this was all pro bono for the good of the community they entered into agreements based upon. goodwill rather than good business sense 276, 22 If Summerhill taught us anything it was that no strings attached service needs some strings attached 287. Toxic Charity, www 15MinuteBusinessBooks com 4, There is no simple or immediate way to discern the right. response without a relationship, 23 But unselfish investment should never be mindless never be irresponsible always calculate the cost always. consider the outcome always be a partnership 289, 24 Again and again we are finding that when it comes to global needs in organizational development and human.
development the granting of money creates dependence and conflict not independence and respect 319. 25 By changing the equation to other means of exchange we find that we are empowering people based on shared. responsibility mutual support and accountability 321. 26 Even the most kindhearted rightly motivated giving as innocent as giving Christmas toys to needy children can. exact an unintended toll on a parent s dignity 351. 27 I began studying the facial expressions of those I ushered into our church clothes closet. I observed too how quickly recipients response to charity devolved from gratitude to expectation to entitlement. 28 Wherever there was sustained one way giving unwholesome dynamics and pathologies festered under the cover. of kindheartedness 374, 29 Doing for rather than doing with those in need is the norm 378. 30 Thrift stores unlike free clothes closets are legitimate businesses that need customers to pay the light bill and. make weekly payroll 399, When the customer is necessary to ensure the business s survival there is equity of power And parity is the. higher form of charity 402, 31 Mercy without justice degenerates into dependency and entitlement preserving the power of the giver over the. recipient Justice without mercy is cold and impersonal more concerned about rights than relationships 443. Mercy combined with justice creates immediate care with a future plan emergency relief and responsible. development short term intervention and long term involvement heart responses and engaged minds 446. 32 one in every one hundred Americans goes homeless at some point during the year 462. 33 The right mix of misery and hope gets the dollar 521. 34 There is no simple or immediate way to discern the right response without a relationship 524. 35 Food in our society is a chronic poverty need not a life threatening one And when we respond to a chronic need. as though it were a crisis we can predict toxic results dependency deception disempowerment 592. 36 Exasperated I asked Why do we persist in giving away food when we know it fosters dependency Because. it s easier 598, 37 TRUST IS THE FOUNDATION of all human relationships Without trust marriages dissolve business partnerships. collapse loyalty evaporates Trust is the bedrock upon which civil society is built 646. 38 Recipients must become dispensers authors of the rules builders of community 661. 39 We know that trust grows with accountability over time We know that mutual exchange and legitimate. negotiating is energizing people of every culture love to bargain And we know that employment starts people. on the path to self reliance We know these things And we have the capacity to accomplish them But the will to. change our traditional charity systems now that is the real challenge 670. 40 Look at most any promotional package for a mission trip and you will get the distinct impression that lost. starving forsaken people have their last hope riding on the willingness of U S church groups to come and rescue. But the overwhelming majority of our mission trips are to places where the needs are for development rather than. emergency assistance And development is about enabling indigenous people to help themselves This requires a. longer term commitment not the sort of involvement that lends itself to short term mission trips 720. Toxic Charity, www 15MinuteBusinessBooks com 5, Maybe it s time to ditch the balanced portfolio and focus.
on outcomes, 41 But isn t it time we admit to ourselves that mission trips are essentially for our benefit Would it not be more. forthright to call our junkets insight trips or exchange programs 725. 42 If we are serious about significant impact the missions we invest in must produce measurable results 798. 43 A simultaneous advance on all facets of community life safety education housing youth seniors church block. by block organizing business produces measurable results The effort must be sustained over time to produce. deep and permanent change And this is costly However as neighborhood health improves as economic forces. take hold as the fabric of the community is strengthened the need for outside resources will diminish This may. take up to a decade 805, 44 But I also know that all of us respond to inspired and intelligent leadership When the vision is right people rise to. a worthy challenge 816, 45 Maybe it s time to ditch the balanced portfolio and focus on outcomes 819. 46 Institutional self interest is not confined to the church All institutions religious or secular for profit or nonprofit. public or private feed it 820, 47 Everything depends upon the lens through which we view reality 872. 48 But in the same way that politics is local so in the final analysis all charity begins at home Top down charity. seldom works 889, 49 Had the president s council of strategists included an experienced community developer the decision to target.
twenty multineighborhood school catchment districts would have been immediately challenged 930. A community developer would have known instinctively that to create a new unified community comprised of. multiple competing neighborhoods would be nearly impossible even for an ex president 933. 50 Emergency charity based and government are the three forms of aid flowing into Africa 984. 51 urges aid recipients to do the following Get off aid Promote entrepreneurship Promote free trade. Invest in infrastructure Secure reasonable loans not grants Encourage stable homeownership 1006. Don t subsidize poverty Reinforce productive work Create producers not beggars Invest in self sufficiency. 52 The hard part however does not lie in the creation of new models food buying co ops food for community. service wholesale outlets The hard part is rethinking the entrenched giveaway mentality and restructuring an. established one way charity system A hunger free zone may be possible but developing the dependency free. zone is the real challenge 1064, 53 It s much easier to make money than it is to give it away intelligently emphasis mine Warren Buffett admitted. 54 Due diligence is the cornerstone of wise giving 1106. 55 Innovation and risk taking are at least as important to the world of compassion as to th. Toxic Charity There is no simple or immediate way to discern the right response without a relationship 23 But unselfish investment should never be mindless never be irresponsible always calculate the cost always consider the outcome always be a partnership 289 24 Again and again we are finding that when it comes to global needs in
