Setting Up a Planned Giving Program for Your Parish
June 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFREE
Workshop: Setting Up a Planned Giving Program for Your Parish
Take the mystery out of planned giving for your parish. Learn in easy-to-understand terms how planned giving differs from annual stewardship and capital campaigns, and how your parish can build endowments through estate allocations, life income, and other gifts. After 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. You will leave the workshop with a plan of action.
