This week Mitzie Schafer from NovusWay and Mike Ward from GSB Fundraising talk about planned gifts. Is now – during a pandemic and down market – the time to be encouraging planned gifts? You will hear from Mike and Mitzie about:

1.     What is a planned gift? And who is likely to leave one?

2.     What does your congregation need to be ready to receive a planned gift?

3.     Is now the appropriate time for encouraging planned gifts?

Mike Ward’s new book, Abundance: Creating a Culture of Generosity, can be purchased here.

Mike will be leading a Congregational Vitality retreat at Lutheranch this fall, November 13-15, 2020. Click here to learn more and register.
