Annual Giving

Project Resource teaches about different types of giving and strategies for planning a successful annual stewardship campaign. Your annual stewardship campaign invites members of your congregation to pledge from their financial resources to support the day-to-day work of the parish.

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21&  Luke 12:34

When you break down an annual campaign to an intentional monthly calendar, the many to-dos become do-able! How do you plan, create, launch, track, succeed, celebrate, and thank within an annual cycle?
