Creating Congregational Cultures of Generosity
April 26, 2013 @ 8:30 am - 8:00 pm
Most of the contemporary resources that deal with congregational finances focus on fundraising techniques. But the mechanisms, like capital campaigns, are like icing on a cake and do not offer a long-term plan for sustainability.
This seminar demonstrates how to “bake the cake” of congregational generosity by exploring the significant and necessary steps to creating lasting cultural change within a congregation and synthesizing research from the Center on Philanthropy and the practical experiences of working with religious organizations from the Lake Institute.
Through presentation, small group and individual exercises, and a high degree of interaction, participants imagine and design their own plan for creating cultures of generosity in their congregations.
