Is Your Church Prepared To Receive A Portion of The $59 Trillion?

We are now witnessing the greatest transfer of wealth in history.

As reported by CNBC, a new study from Boston College Center on Wealth and Philanthropy projects that heirs, charities, and taxes will receive $59 trillion between 2007 and 2061. (Yes, that’s trillion with a T!) This is up from a 1999 projection of $41 trillion.

Charities in particular are forecast to receive more than $6 trillion of this wealth transfer, while total gifts to charity during this period are expected to be more than $27 trillion.

Pastor, are you ready for this? Is your church prepared?

Are you encouraging your members, who are forgetting your church in their estate plans, to consider legacy giving?

And with this updated calculation of wealth transfer, what better timing than now to take a quick inventory on how you are doing in this area!

And, just to make it a bit easier, here are direct links to those posts for quick reference:

Are you interested in learning more about how legacy giving can have a long-term impact on your ministry? I would love to start a conversation with you!
