Receive, invest, and manage gifts to your community of faith.
One of the three main reasons people give to any organization is a clear belief that their gift will be managed well in order to make an impact toward that organization’s calling and purpose.
How you receive, invest, and manage the financial resources of your community of faith is not only a way of living out your faith and your calling, but it can also directly affect a donor’s willingness to give.
