Effective Fundraising for a Thriving Church
Money and mission go together. One cannot prosper without the other. During six group sessions we will formulate a plan for ways your church can thrive by not being afraid to ask people for needed funds for your church’s mission. These sessions will include:
Mission – how is your church changing lives?
Compelling communication – how and when to talk about generosity
Segmented giving – who is in your church community and what are their interests?
Specialized campaigns – how to organize them
Legacy giving – when generosity pays off
Creating a Plan – an individual coaching session to help each participant tweak his or her fundraising plan
We will use J. Clif Christopher’s book e-Giving as a resource.
