2019 Webinar Series – Session 3: How to Endow One’s Pledge

March 20, 2019 10:00 am (PST) - March 20, 2019 11:00 am (PST)

The Presbyterian Foundation is offering a series of five webinars in 2019 on engaging church givers in stewardship and money-related conversations. Pastors, business administrators, stewardship chairs, treasurers, session clerks, and others involved in the financial life of the church are invited to register. The workshops are free. You can sign up for the whole series, or just topics that interest you the most.

Rob Hagan and Karl Mattison will present the webinars. Rob is a Ministry Relations Officer for the Presbyterian Foundation. Karl serves the Foundation as Vice President of Planned Giving. Rob and Karl have teamed up many times to educate church leaders on financial topics. They are excited to offer webinar participants tools for building generous, vital communities of faithful givers who want their resources to change people’s lives for Jesus Christ.

Session 3 will focus on setting up an endowment. This is important from a pastoral care perspective, as endowments offer members an avenue to share their faith with their loved ones after they die. Endowing one’s pledge also addresses the problem of having a small number of members whose giving accounts for a large percentage of your budget.
