As we enter the last quarter of 2022, it’s time to start thinking about ramping up your church’s year-end giving strategy.
While there are a multitude of steps within a comprehensive strategy, we’re going to focus on two fundamental steps that can easily be integrated — a year-end giving strategy and annual giving statements that mail out in January.
Implementing these two pieces are your initial next steps to building a giving plan that cultivates generosity in your church for decades to come. These two combined steps will create a fluid motion that not only allows you to finish well, but ensures your new year starts strong.
From ideation to implementation, a veteran Generosity Strategist will work with you and your team to create a tailored approach to your Year-End Giving strategy that is designed based on your church's unique culture, needs, challenges, and generosity goals.

Year-end is prime time for giving. According to a survey by Non-Profit Tech for Good shows that 31% of all giving is made in December, with the last three days of the year responsible for 12% of all giving. Communicating to your audience through a year-end giving letter may be the nudge your givers need to make or increase their giving. When followed by an intentional annual statement letter in January, you have the opportunity to show your gratitude and share your inspiring vision for the year to come.
