“Swimming Naked” shares how congregations with endowments may have trouble below the surface that no one can see at the moment.
How do you know if you’re over-spending? Do the endowment police show up in force? “Are You Overspending Your Endowment?” shares how overspending may occur illegally – or accidentally – and how to make things right.
A legacy society can help create or grow an endowment through planned giving. “Creating a Legacy Society” shares how to create a brochure and enrollment form that can be customized for your congregation.
THIS MONTH IN YEAR-ROUND STEWARDSHIP
“‘Final Affairs’ Fair Offers a Good Way Out” shares how St. Andrew’s hosted an event to discuss and plan end of life issues. It also includes a resource that congregations may adapt for their own contexts.
