The Diocese held a one-day planned giving workshop on Saturday, October 20th at St. Crispin’s Conference Center and Camp. Parish leaders from three different congregations: St. Michael’s, Norman; All Saint’s, McAlester; and Christ Church, Tulsa attended the one-day workshop. Our presenter was James Murphy, Managing Program Director for the Episcopal Church Foundation.
Planned giving is vital to any faith community. Not only because it can ensure the future, but also because it gives people the opportunity to make a final testament about the importance of their Christian faith.
The workshop educated and empowered these leaders on different giving vehicles, how to start the conversation, and tips on working with other parishioners. The leaders received a Planned Giving On-demand Toolkit at the end of the program. This toolkit is a step by step guide to implementing a planned giving program in their congregation.
If you or your parish would like additional information on planned giving, please contact Tyler Davis, Director of Stewardship and Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
