Build an Impactful Giving Plan

Even during hard financial times

white curve

The financial health of the Church is not always steady and predictable. Currently, we are seeing a decline in the number of one-time gifts being given to the church. And those one-time gifts are decreasing in amount due to outside factors affecting the lives of contributors. But what about the financial needs of the Church?

You may have a financial plan in place, but does that plan include ways to prevent large dips in tithes and offerings when unexpected pandemics and recessions occur?

As your ministry partner, we walk alongside you in both the good and unsure times. We are listening to struggles pastors, financial directors, and other ministry leaders just like you are having today, and we are watching trends closely to understand the needs of the Church. We’ve prepared a toolkit specifically to guide you through building an impactful giving plan that will withstand the harder financial times.

This toolkit includes:

While we can’t evaluate every expense of every church, we can help you build an impactful giving plan that will increase your giving by getting your entire congregation behind the mission of your church. We’ve prepared this toolkit specifically to guide you through building an impactful giving plan that will withstand the harder financial times.

Pulpit Announcements

As church staff, it can be frustrating at times when you say something and it seems to go ignored until the pastor says the exact same thing and everyone responds. Use that to your advantage! Your pastor is the leader of the church and your congregation listens to what he has to say. Provide him with compelling announcements to make from the pulpit asking for donations to support your mission.

Video Stories

If you follow social media, you know videos are on the rise while text posts receive less attention. Use that same approach by finding those in your church or community that have been touched by the mission you’re asking your contributors to support and ask them to share the impact that mission has had in their lives. And don’t worry, you don’t have to have a huge production. A smartphone with a camera, natural lighting outdoors or by a large window, a simple background, and a compelling story are all you need.

Take a look at how Elizabeth Baptist Church communicated the impact financial gifts made on their ministries and missions through video.

Email Strategy

Build an email strategy to reach specific donor groups with targeted messaging. Use your church management solution to identify groups of donors, such as your top donors, donors in a specific age group, or those donors who haven’t given in the past 3 months. Craft emails that reach each group and share the impact their gifts can make to your mission. Be sure to link directly to a giving form where your mission is already chosen as the fund to make giving even easier. Having your pastor’s signature on the email will make it even more effective in gaining attention from your donors.

Social Media Strategy

Social media is one of the most effective ways of getting a message out to followers and the public quickly. Videos and images are the best way to stand out in social news feeds. Share graphics and impact videos on social media with links to where contributors can give to support your mission. Here’s some free graphics you can share with your followers.

Easter is one of the most anticipated and celebrated times of the year for your church. It is a wonderful opportunity to reach new people, grow your church giving, engage more families and kids, and expand the Kingdom of God.

We want to help you have a fruitful Easter season, so we’ve created customizable resources including announcement slides, invitation cards, social media graphics, and pew cards. Be sure to check out the templated giving messages to help remind people why supporting the life of your church is important. Plus, we have included some fun, easy activities to get the children involved and entertained.

Invitation Cards

The tried and true – and still most effective – way of growing your church is through personal invites. Customize and print these invitation cards so everyone in your church has one to give out in the weeks leading up to Easter.

Website Banners

church invitation cards

In the weeks leading up to Easter, you should have a big, bold banner or pop-up on your church website with Easter event details and an option to “Plan Your Visit.” This link/button could lead to a simple webpage with event details, what to expect, and a contact form. Help people plan their visit by making general information about parking, kids, attire, and service flow easily accessible. It’s a great way to help people through the awkwardness of a new church experience and capture their information for easier follow-up later.

Worship Slides

easter web banners

Your worship announcement slideshow is a great place to remind your members of your Easter service and various giving options. Download and customize these slides to use for both your in-person and online worship slides.

Social Media Graphics

church guides

Social media is a great way for you to connect with your members and those who are potentially planning to visit your church this Easter. Our social media graphics are sized for the major platforms, and can also be used as images in your newsletter, on your website, or wherever you see fit. Encourage your members to share your posts to reach even more people.

Bulletin Messages

church guides

Your church bulletin keeps your members informed and is a ministry preview for the visitors you will have this Easter. What better way to tell them of your Easter service and all of your giving options than to include them in your bulletin? Customize these bulletin messages to make sure you grow attendance and generosity this Easter.

GIVING BULLETIN INSERTS

Your members and visitors this Easter may not be aware of the many ways they can conveniently donate to your church. Customize and print these bulletin inserts to show how easy it is to donate online or through text.

EMAIL TEMPLATE

Church Bulletin Inserts

While mentioning the importance of tithes and offerings from the pulpit is one of the strongest ways to encourage generosity, we have to think of those who aren’t able to worship with us in person. Use this email template to get you started as you send your Easter service details along with a reminder of the impact of giving this season.

DIRECT MAIL TEMPLATE

You would be setting a record if you had the email address of every single member in your church. Which is why we’ve created a template you can use to send a personalized letter through the mail requesting donations and communicating your Easter service details.

“I GIVE ONLINE” OFFERING CARDS

Even though online donations are common and popular these days, the action of dropping something into the offering plate is reverent and important for many. These offering cards can be placed in your church pews this Easter as an option for those who give online but still want to partake in offering time during your worship service.

CHILDREN’S ACTIVITIES

church pew cards

Typically, families with kids will likely be the largest portion of visitors you see but, many of these children may not have much practice sitting in church. so, it’s a great idea to anticipate their involvement and make arrangements. Even small gestures go a long way in helping your youngest guests (and their families!) feel right at home when they join you on Easter.

church childrens activities

Rejoice in the Lord and this blessed holiday.

In all your planning, don’t miss the power of the moment by being caught up in the preparation of it. Remember that what we’re celebrating is a miraculous spiritual event that has brought hope to billions of people throughout history. When people come to worship and celebrate the resurrection at your church, it’s a big deal! All of your plans are important, but not as important as letting God lead you to reach your community profoundly this Easter. And remember, we’re praying with you, trusting that God will lead your church to big things for his glory!
