Why did donors leave you last year? Job transfer? Getting mad? How do you shut the back door and how do we emphasize the front door? Are you attracting new donors? This session will give a different slant on your church’s data. It will tell you many things that are different than what is readily apparent.
Most of us have assumptions about our donors
Brad is President and Principal at Generis, a team of coaches that accelerates generosity toward God-inspired vision. He works with churches across the country, and now internationally, to increase everyday church giving, project giving and legacy giving. Over the last eleven years, Brad and David have teamed up on many workshops and presentations. If you know Brad, then you know there won’t be a sales pitch. This workshop will stand alone and you will have plenty of data to work with.
We are using Generis’ new and amazing tool. This tool is free for the session and for ten days afterward.
Suppose you see that giving is up ten percent. Is that more donations per attendee or more donors?
Knowing your metrics tells you where you are, where you are going and measures how you are doing getting there.
With a ten percent increase in donations, how many of those were new donors? Are you attracting new donors?
Increase your giving without requiring a capital campaign.
Even with a ten percent increase in donations, how many donors stopped giving? Are they still attending? When do people stop giving and how much later do they typically leave your church?
We will examine these pivotal concepts
- Why did donors leave you last year? Job transfer? Did they leave mad?
- How do you shut the back door and how can you emphasize the front door?
- Are you attracting new donors?
This session will give a different slant on your church’s data. It will tell you many things that are different than what is readily apparent.
Are giving increases a result of a growing donor constituent base or are you pressing into a small portion of donors to make budget growth? Learn why one is sustainable while the other is short lived.
Connecting and Growing First Time Donors
First time visitors are great! However, are you able to on-board them as donors? Are you able to assimilate them into the fabric of the ministry? If not, learn why weekend attendance growth can be a false positive for healthy ministry growth.
New faces in church are great, but what is the financial impact of losing the old ones? Minimizing donor churn can supercharge weekend attendance and annual giving growth. Monitoring donor trends is one way to surface ministry opportunities. Rule based push reporting can increase your ministry efficiency and connect with those that need pastoral care.
