Planned Giving Tool Box

Planned giving is not about finding another way to get church members’ money. It is an opportunity for us all to return to God that which God entrusted us with during our lifetime. It is also an opportunity for us all to further strengthen Christ’s church for the future by providing for ministry and mission for those who come after us. We all stand on the shoulders of those who came before us; let’s be the shoulders for those who come after us.

Many people believe that planned giving is only for the wealthy. Planned giving is for all of us. We all have something to give and we can all leave our legacy. The key to a successful planned giving program in a church is to make sure that people in the church know that the church wants and needs its members to leave their faith legacy for the future. Considering a planned gift means one is thinking about their own mortality and that is not something most people like to think about. So, churches must keep this idea of leaving a faith legacy in front of its members so that when the time comes and someone is thinking about their legacy, that their first thought is to leave a faith legacy!

This toolbox includes some great resources to help you equip your congregation to shape their faith legacies. Please let us know if you can use additional help. Your Ministry Relations Officer is here to serve you.
