Endowment… a Resource for Ministry
A four-week, webinar series that provides congregation representatives (a small ad-hoc team of church members) with step-by-step training to establish, or to renew, an endowment stewardship ministry.
An endowment supports the present ministries and sustains the future ministries of your church. Comprehensive resources and training materials are provided with customized support from the Foundation staff.
Learn how to best equip your congregation to implement a successful and vital endowment ministry.
- Week 1: Endowment 101: What is an endowment and why does my church need one? Learn what “Planned Giving” means. Find out how actively promoting endowments can improve the bottom line for operations.
- Week 2: Endowment stewardship: Create an agreement between your church and legacy givers. Your Charter Document will encompass legal requirements and best practices for endowment management.
- Week 3: Communication plans: Create brochures and presentations, and a strategy for how to best inform your church leadership and members about your endowment ministry.
- Week 4: Ask and receive: Learn about the types of estate and planned-gifts to encourage legacy gifts from your members. Learn the language of asking for a planned gift.
Activate a Permanent Endowment and Planned Giving Ministry Committee (B.O.D. ¶2534) and a 5-year timeline for growing your ministry.
