This past week, a friend asked if we had any documented fund raising guidelines for either churches in general or for mission trips in particular. This particular church is sending out a medical mission team in the Spring. In addition to normal supplies and funds to raise they are raising funds for expensive medical equipment and supplies.  So this is more than what the typical mission trip does, according to my friend.  He wrote, “We keep getting questions about selling things and donating funds to buy equipment, but some of these folks are getting more creative than our guidelines.” So — would anyone happen to have anything already written up or documented that would also address some of these sticky ethical wickets?
