Center for Generosity - Learn on your own time

A new resource from GSB Fundraising is for rostered ministers, lay council and stewardship leaders. It is an online set of tools (podcasts, videos, documents and consultant office hours) open for individual and group education. You learn at your own pace and subjects of interest/concern to your context. This new resource may help you not just in stewardship, but a more comprehensive range of consultations on best practices for crisis management, storytelling, governance, communication, data management and more. This resource was generously funded for the Rocky Mountain Synod in 2022 by the 3E Lilly Grant.

  • It is a wonderful resource for congregations in your generosity culture-building journey...add more leaders, build on what you've learned. Enhance your common knowledge base and build skill sets.
  • Learning is not scheduled, nor is it focused entirely on fundraising. It is engaging at your own pace and choosing topics to dive into that are most relevant to your congregational context. Each participant is a "member" and can choose when, what and how they wish to learn. You can also choose topics, set up sessions to learn in your own groups.
  • The ability to schedule 1-on-1 sessions with a variety of GSB consultants to zero-in on your individual needs is a highly prized and valuable resource.
