March Madness Report
In March, 13 staff with the People Resources Team (PRT) participated in a focused funding campaign. The goal was to conduct as many face-to-face funding appeals as possible in 10 days (email and phone appeals also counted) to acquire new monthly giving partners. Here’s a report of the results to date.
78 face-to-face appointments were held
22 phone appeals were made
59 letter or email appeals were made
And now, the really exciting news! Through the staffs’ efforts, the Lord provided:
40 new giving partners
$19,850 in new special gifts
$2,388 in new monthly commitments
These gifts represent entirely new funding to support our calling and work that we did not have before we started this MPD emphasis. Well done, PRT staff!
I’ll give you the same “pep talk” I’ve given our PRT staff: Let’s not stop now that March Madness is over. Ministry Partner Development is just as much a part of our ministry as day-to-day pastoral care, staff development—or whatever calling God has given you. Keep at it!
