Annual Giving Library

Welcome. Whether you are a congregation in the Diocese of Virginia or elsewhere we invite you into our annual giving library.

This library of turn-key annual giving resources allows churches are invited to choose the theme and focus that works best for their culture and context. Each program offers a separate logo specification document, so that ministry leaders may expand church-wide communications with matching fonts, colors, and other details.

How do you know what to choose?

It’s important to ask yourself, “When was the last time we made a discernible pivot in our fall annual giving?”  Even when an annual giving ministry works really well, churches should change plans about every three years so everyone involved can experience God’s call in new and engaging ways. Because we model what we teach, different approaches are available!

  • Proportional Giving and Living: Includes themes from Holy Eucharist liturgy and focuses on proportional giving. Walk In LoveNow Into the WorldAll Hearts Open.
  • Visual Storytelling: Draws themes from our Holy Baptism liturgy, with a focus on visual storytelling through the use of ministry icons. Wonder in AllOne TogetherBroken Open.
  • Transition: We heartily acknowledge that there are transitions that occur in our world, our churches, and all around. This theme recognizes transitions in many forms, including the many churches undergo through clergy retirements, as well as, increasing changes to church demographics. Do Not Be Afriad.
  • Missional Storytelling: Intentional focus on telling stories of mission and ministry within your congregation. You Welcomed Me.

In addition, the Diocese of Virginia is a member of TENS (The Episcopal Network for Stewardship). This means that all of our congregations have free access to their member-only materials. Contact us for password-protected information.

We have webinars for narrative budgets and visual budgets. We have communications ready for you to tailor to your context. We have options for blessings and prayers – and more of all of these to come. Take a look around and contact us if you have any questions.
