Our Thoughts on Giving
One aspect of stewardship that is difﬁcult for people to grasp is the giving of one’s treasure. We know that stewardship is much more than fundraising, but we also know that there is an important connection between the two. Parishes that embrace stewardship already understand the four characteristics from the 1992 pastoral letter on Stewardship, A Disciple’s Response:
- Giving back to the Lord with increase
Good stewards are the best fundraising prospects because they live out this stewardship attitude. They give back to the Lord through their volunteer work and by the way they live out their commitment to Jesus.
Increased Offertory Program
Cathedral Corporation’s Increased Offertory Program (IOP) will have an immediate, positive impact on your church’s offertory income while also reducing staff time and effort. The IOP provides a meaningful and convenient method for ongoing, yearly renewal, and can be coordinated with effective offering envelope and e-giving choices. While the full integrated program has proven most practical and effective in general application, we’d be happy to advise and quote you on special needs, uses and/or modification of the elements in our Increased Offertory Program.
We combine the best and most widely proven influences in sound, effective giving development and fosters the ideal of giving as a way of life. We believe in our programs and offer an unprecedented guarantee - contact us to obtain the details.
