While most churches rely on weekly giving and specific fundraising campaigns to provide the support they need, many overlook the value of planned giving as another avenue of giving within the church. Future gifts from estates and trusts not only benefit the church as an organization, but also the next generation of Christ-followers who will impact the world for Christ. By establishing a planned giving program, you give members of your congregation the opportunity to invest their resources in a way that advances the Kingdom of God even beyond their own lifetime. The Tennessee Baptist Foundation can help your church set up a planned giving program that will make it possible.
Through the ‘Leaving a Legacy for the Church’ presentation, your church will:
-Understand What Legacy Gifting Means: Tennessee Baptist Foundation will walk attendees through the ins and outs of legacy gifting and help them gain a deep familiarity with the topic.
-Be Equipped to Establish a Planned Giving Program: Your church will be prepared with the knowledge and inspiration to establish its own planned giving program as well as explain it to members of the congregation.
-Know How to Increase Overall Giving: Members of your church staff will be encouraged and empowered with the knowledge of how to increase overall giving through planned giving programs, an often underused channel, in a way that makes an even greater impact in the community and around the world.
