Endowment giving essentials
What do you need to know about planned giving to effectively build your endowment? What’s popular? What’s new? We’ll take you beyond the basics.

Reviewing & refining your endowment policy
Endowment policies need periodic refreshment. We’ll discuss a checklist for review and options to refine your policy for greater sustainability.

Donor-friendly endowment marketing
Does your endowment need a jumpstart? How do you appeal to donors at every age — from those too young for planned gifts to those actively planning their estates? Let’s discuss how to move your endowment from dreams to donations!

Spending wisely from your endowment
Good spending policies and practices influence not only your church’s mission and budget, but your endowment’s appeal to donors. We’ll discuss policies for wise spending.
