Expand Your Giving Potential
To increase generosity, we need to provide a variety of ways to give and offer people easy paths to bless others with their generosity. The Foundation has trained coaches who are available to work with you and help connect these dots with an action plan that fits your specific situation and needs.
What would I do with a coach?
Begin by setting three giving goals for your congregation through the season. Is one of them a stretch goal? Is there something that will attract the community (dollars beyond the pockets in the pews)? Are there a variety of dollar amounts in projects to which people can contribute? Did you provide for the small gifts, the large gifts, as well as the gifts beyond the grave? A coach will help you move from goal setting and action steps, to celebration of your results and insights for your next efforts.
Who are the Coaches?
MAUMF has sponsored training for 30 coaches over the last several years and provides ongoing support for those who choose to coach with the Foundation. These are clergy and laity from within our three Annual Conferences, who have numerous hours of coaching experience. They are supervised by a certified coach and are excited to be a part of this pilot program.
These are not financial advisors or stewardship consultants. But coaches can be great catalysts to spark new generosity ideas and help you structure them to take hold and increase the potential for giving in your congregation.
