Reimagining Charity Workshop

Presented by Holy Trinity Lutheran Church at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Akron OH

May 21 2016
Reimagining Charity Workshop

This seminar introduces groups to the basic concepts of toxic and responsible charity and invites groups to consider why traditional charity paradigms are not working and to envision a new and better way forward.

“Give a man a fish, he eats for a night.  Teach a man to fish, he eats for his life.”  This seminar begins to examine this very concept through interactive discussions using Robert Lupton’s book, Toxic Charity, as a guide.  According to Lupton, “Public Service is a way of life for Americans; giving is a part of our national character.  But compassionate instincts and generous spirits aren’t enough. “  Participants will look at real life examples and participate in thought-provoking exercises, leaving ready to chart a new course for more responsible charity.


$25 per person; $50 maximum per organization for three or more participants (Lunch included)
