Please find the bulletin notes for the month of April in both English and Spanish. This month, we focus on giving unneeded insurance and gifts to the parish endowment fund – gifts that support your parish’s mission forever.
In a recent parish survey, we found that 74% of parishioners do not know your parish has an endowment fund. However, 50% said they would be likely or very likely to donate to it! It makes sense to communicate your endowment fund as a giving option to parishioners who want to support the parish now and in the future.
Please include these notes in your parish bulletin to encourage more gifts to the parish endowment fund. We would like to work with you to increase it, and we would like to make it as easy as possible to do so. These bulletin notes are just one way to communicate planned giving to your parishioners.
If you have any questions regarding the notes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions about your parish endowment fund or planned giving, please contact Juliet Greco at email@example.com or 404-497-9440.
