Leave a Mark: Legacy Society Events that Make an Impression

Breathe new life into your Legacy Society events to encourage new donors, honor long-standing donors, and reinvigorate your faith community’s endowment giving program.

Join ECF’s Endowment Management Program on Wednesday, October 12 from 2:00 pm to 2:30 pm, Eastern time for a free webinar on creating Legacy Society events that make a lasting impression. This webinar is the first in a three-part series focused on sustainable endowment giving ministries.

Now more than ever, creating and hosting Legacy Society events presents a challenge to many churches. How do you create events that attract more donors/members? Traditional Legacy Society events such as dinners and luncheons are a mainstay in many Episcopal churches but there are many ways to thank donors for their contributions and form community through your Legacy Society.

In this 30-minute webinar, we will identify and explore the challenges and opportunities to grow your endowment through Legacy Society events. We’ll discuss strategies for creating successful events that create long-term support for your church’s endowment, and we will provide participants with tools and resources to achieve their goals.
