Annual Giving Campaign Tools

Does your congregation think about and talk about stewardship only during the annual funding campaign? If so, you’re missing year-round opportunities for formation. Not sure how to start? These two tools may help.

Laurel Johnston, now the executive director of The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS), has developed a checklist and a planning guideline for stewardship teams planning an annual giving campaign, work that is best accomplished over the course of a full year.  She advises,

“Remember the purpose of an annual giving campaign is not only to raise support to fund the vision and mission of your congregation, but also to help people explore intentional and proportional giving as a spiritual practice that reflects gratitude and generosity for all that has been given. Take time to consider how you can implement any or all of these components that will lay a firm foundation for the success of an annual giving campaign.”
