‘Seed for the City’ is the blog for Zoey Creative Development, a fundraising consultancy that works primarily for urban nonprofits. We have two primary goals: (1) increase donation revenue, and (2) develop philanthropists’ enjoyment of giving and heart for the city.  This, we believe, will strengthen the local community fabric, grow people in their desire to serve, and create a sustainable giving model for the organization.

When we generously sow our lives—like seed—for our neighbors’ sake, we believe we find a type of rich, abundant life the Greeks referred to as zoë.  At Zoey, we sow our lives by donating 20% of gross revenues to charity.

This blog is dedicated to writing on generosity and the strengthening of the urban fabric…as well as occasionally highlighting works of artful writing that express joy and renewal.
