Webinar: The Best Annual Budget Drive Ever Part 2
Type of event: Webinar
Sponsor: Central East Region of the UUA
We are excited to offer a series of three 90-minute webinars designed to help Unitarian Universalist congregations in the Central East Region apply stewardship best practices to improve the effectiveness of their annual budget drives. The webinars will be held on successive Monday evenings in the Spring to provide a springboard for effective planning for Fall 2017 and Winter/Spring 2018 drives. While each webinar is stand-alone, participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three.
Cost of each session is $30 per connection. If a congregation wishes to gather a group to watch together, you need only register and pay once as long as there will only be one computer/phone connection to the webinar. Total cost for the entire series is $90. Scholarships are available, please contact Patricia Infante at pinfante [at] uua [dot] org for details.
Presented by Barry Finklestein of StewardshipForUs and Patricia Infante, CER Congregational Life Staff.
Session 2: Talking About Money – Recognizing the baggage we bring and the anxiety many of us have about money and stewardship, how can we talk about sharing our gifts in service of the whole, that is, our beloved faith community. How can we talk to one another about our dreams and vision for our church -- linked to the money it will take to turn those dreams into a reality. We will explore mission/program-based budgeting and strategic financial planning. And how to talk with your kids about money. We will share giving stories from other UUs, who dug deep to support their annual and capital campaigns. What can we learn from their stories? What are our stories?
