2 Corinthians 9:11 in the NIV says, "You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God."
2 Corinthians 9:6 - 15
ESV - 6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

I would say that Paul is concentrating here not on a form or amount by which a person is enriched, nor is he preaching a so-called "prosperity gospel" -- where a person receives assets (in whatever form) for personal use as a reward for contributions -- but is speaking of the "before-the-fact" purpose for which any such "disposable assets" (whatever form they may take) exist or are granted by God -- that of being generously shared with those who are comparatively lacking in them.
