Church Giving During COVID: Reasons for Optimism
God’s people are still giving, churches are learning from this pandemic, and God is still faithful.
October 26, 2020
We recently talked about boosting giving at your church using this one simple method, but we didn't provide an example or a concrete way for you to take our tip and put it into action.
So this is us changing our ways and offering up a great end of year fundraising template email for your church newsletter.
Feel free to copy the below and modify it to you liking.
The key, connect with your members, remind them of what God is doing through their church, and ask them to contribute to the continued vision!

Hi, Member Name Here --
As this year winds to a close, I simply wanted to shoot you a quick email to remind you of three cool things that happened at our church this year. These are directly related to the investment which our people have made in the mission; so, you’ve got a big part in this.
Thank you. Thank you for being a part of what God is doing through our church. Your giving to our ministry this year has made all the difference!
As we come into these last few hours of the year, I’m wondering if you’d be willing to make a final gift to the mission of our church? We rely on faithful giving from people like you, and your gift today would help us start next year off strong. It would be our honor if you could give a gift as we ring in the New Year!

Thank you for your generosity. It really means a lot to us.
The best is yet to come!
