Item description for Creative Giving: Understanding Planned Giving and Endowments in Church by Michael Reeves, Rob Fairly & Sanford Coon...
Intimidated by numbers? Most church leaders are. If you're not the sort who would find it fun to plot your budget in Roman numerals, this book is for you! Creative Giving is the perfect resource to teach ""words-rather-than-numbers"" staff about distinctive strategies for church financial planning, such as bequests and other planned giving. This book lays out a systematic means for non-experts to think about stewardship and long-term fiscal planning within the ministry and mission of the church. The authors will help church leaders understand the transfer of wealth through estates, wills, and other development arrangements. While comprehensive and complex in its topic, Creative Giving is written in a spare style. After reading this book, you'll have the tools needed to develop a successful and creative giving program within your congregation.
