October Legacy Liaison Meeting – October 26
In this session, Wells Fargo Senior Philanthropic Specialist Debra Faulk and Wealth Advisor John Ripoll will provide the “why” to include an appeal for non-cash assets in your year-end plans (especially since about 31% of all annual giving occurs in December) and the “how” to leverage these most valuable assets to achieve maximum impact on your fundraising.
They will share factors predicting current and long-term fundraising growth, investigate the psychological and practical aspects of why gifts of non-assets are so critical for high-growth fundraising, and identify strategies for nonprofits to pursue gifts of non-assets rather than gifts of cash.
Deo Gratias Society Livestream Mass – September 18
The Deo Gratias Society and Founders Society honor Catholics who have given or pledged lasting gifts to the Catholic community. This year, the Deo Gratias Mass was celebrated via livestream by Archbishop Gregory Hartmayer at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church in Peachtree Corners.
A recording of the Mass is coming soon. View the program here.
If you have made a gift in your will or estate plans to support your parish, Catholic school, or Catholic ministry, please contact us so that we can include you in the Deo Gratias Society and send your invitation.
Grants Application Training for Parishes
This training will take place on Zoom and provide an opportunity to learn how to write a competitive application for our Parish Enrichment or Catholic Community Grants. This is a great opportunity for pastors, business managers, administrative assistants, youth ministers, or anyone in the parish who might input a grant application.
Sharon Adams, the Foundation’s Grants Manager, will cover how to navigate the grant application website, tips on how to write a strong grant application, and answer any questions.
