Creating and Enhancing Planned Giving and Endowment Ministries for Your Congregation. Take the mystery out of planned giving and endowments

About this event

Creating and Enhancing Planned Giving and Endowment Ministries for Your Congregation

Take the mystery out of planned giving and endowments for your congregation. Learn in easy-to-understand terms how planned giving differs from annual stewardship and capital campaigns, and how your congregation can build endowments through wills, life income and other planned gifts. Along with a review of the planned giving instruments, you will learn about the importance of a parish vision, protecting and growing your endowment, and how to invite others to remember your parish through estate and financial planning. Participants will examine important documents to use for structuring your endowment and for clarifying its purpose. You will leave the workshop with a plan of action!

Both parishes with an existing Planned Giving ministry and/or an Endowment, as well as those without one, will benefit from this workshop. This workshop reviews best practices and empowers leadership to be able to take the best, next steps for their congregation!
