Religious giving is down... what’s a ministry to do?

with Linda McNay, PhD


The percentage of giving to religion in 2017 is at an all-time low.
One reason may be that churches are the last sector to adapt their fundraising methods. That goes for annual giving as well as capital campaigns or project fundraising.

What does that mean for your church if you need to conduct a campaign soon?
There are 4 elements critical to campaign fundraising success:
  1. A strong, well-articulated case for support
  2. A sound, written strategy for success
  3. Volunteer and staff leadership committed to and trained for success
  4. Effective execution of the plan and strategies

Dr. Linda Wise McNay will lead us in a discussion of best practices for church fundraising with a specific emphasis on planning and preparing for a capital campaign.
