Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston
Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston brings people from diverse faith traditions together for dialogue, collaboration, and service, as a demonstration of shared beliefs. Interfaith Ministries believes that through service and dialogue it is possible for people to come to find common ground while maintaining their personal beliefs and keeping their cultures intact.
Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston serves the greater Houston community through four areas of service: Meal on Wheels for Greater Houston, Refugee Services, Office of Disaster Preparedness and Response, and Interfaith Relations.
The organization has always been a fan of Raiser’s Edge for tracking and managing donor relations, but in 2014, Interfaith Ministries wanted to focus on boosting its peer-to-peer fundraising efforts using TeamRaiser, the peer-to-peer fundraising solution in Luminate Online.
Every Thanksgiving, Interfaith Ministries organizes 2,000 dedicated volunteers to deliver meals to homebound seniors. In 2014, the organization decided to ask those volunteers to fundraise, so they could feed even more hungry seniors.
