Generosity: A Winning Strategy
Generosity has been the foundation of our Fellowship long before many of us were here. In that spirit your Generosity Ministries Team, in cooperation with the Executive Team, has been working to ensure that foundation stays strong. We developed a winning strategy to help members and friends support the mission of the Fellowship.
The Fellowship’s financial strategy includes three important categories:
This involves careful and responsible management of the Fellowship’s daily, monthly, and annual financial operating needs.
This year we will be hosting what we hope to be our “last traditional pledge campaign”! You will be able to enter your pledge (commitment to donate) for our 2022-2023 operating budget and check the box to continue your pledge into the future. Your pledged contributions will start being collected on July 1 as usual by the method and at the time(s) you specify, and will simply continue unless you make a change. This will allow you to support the Fellowship without one more form to complete every spring and will allow us to engage with you year-round in a more meaningful way.

Endowment: Long Term Giving
Many years ago, members of the Fellowship community started an endowment fund to allow all to invest in the long-term future of the Fellowship. We hope this fund will eventually help support the Fellowship’s operations, allow for program expansion, and meet other long-term needs not readily funded by our annual budget.
Members who give a financial gift to the endowment or notify us of their intention to leave a legacy gift are noted as members of the Acorn Society. Our goal this year is to add 22 members to the Acorn Society.

Fundraising focuses on special events to fund specific and focused unbudgeted needs of the Fellowship. For example, last year’s Lights Camera Auction! raised funds to help purchase and install the audiovisual updates we needed to offer both in-person and virtual connections.
