Journey of A Reluctant Philanthropist

Steve Perry, Sacred Harvest Foundation

Join Steve Perry as he recants his journey starting with his struggle with wealth and overcoming the emotional, psychological and practical barriers to generosity.  He shares lessons learned along the way of becoming a more effective donor, including building a charitable organization and setting up a family office.  His story can give you ideas and inspiration to help your clients and donors achieve greater generosity.



Steve Perry married the love of his life, Susie, in 1975 after graduating from Azusa Pacific University. After his ordination in the Lutheran Church, he served local congregations for 17 years in Orange County, CA.  In 1996, as he and Susie considered the tremendous responsibility of living with wealth, they helped launched the National Christian Foundation office in California, with the objective of establishing a safe environment where the Christian of capacity could grow and learn how to exercise responsible generosity. As a next step in their family's spiritual quest, they established the Sacred Harvest Foundation in 2003 as a philanthropic headwater for Orange County, CA., Maui, and Mindanao, Philippines where they have worked with local NGO’s and churches since 2005. Steve is the author of the book, “Living With Wealth Without Losing Your Soul: A Pastor’s Journey from Guilt to Grace” which explains the unique needs, fears and concerns of the Christian philanthropist.
