Planned Giving Management

Well-executed stewardship planning can provide three important benefits:

  1. A funding stream for future growth and needs
  2. Increased member awareness of current church ministries and needs to grow levels of giving
  3. The opportunity for individuals to support a ministry they love while receiving significant tax benefits

Church Development's planned giving program is designed to foster long–term stewardship planning and to stabilize a church's financial future. We provide valuable resources to build a basic planned giving program and paid services to build a more comprehensive stewardship planning program.

Planned giving services should commence after the church's capital campaign, and can include, among others:

  • Identifying, training and facilitating a volunteer team for planned giving
  • On–going, on–site consultation with the church planned giving team to establish goals, objectives, strategy and a detailed calendar
  • Consultation and advice on creating policies and procedures for gift acceptance and establishing endowments and legacy societies
  • Comprehensive training for the pastor and planned giving committee in the financial and spiritual benefits of philanthropy
  • Identifying, researching and rating planned giving prospects
  • Assisting with planning and implementation of an estate planning event featuring an estate planning professional
  • Creation and design of marketing materials, including brochures and two newsletters
  • Overall management of the planned giving program strategy
  • Training and coaching for the church leaders in donor cultivation, stewardship education and solicitation
  • Establishing an ongoing system for implementing comprehensive stewardship planning
