United Methodist Women - Western North Carolina ConferenceTurning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world
Conference Financial Goal 2019:
To Increase our Conference Giving in the Gift to Mission channel by at least $3,000
Strategy ideas to help us reach this goal:
- Have your unit give new church members / UMW members cards
- Have your unit give new confirmands cards
- Have you unit give baby cards for infants / baptisms
- Encourage individuals to give cards
- Unit treasurers have cards available at each meeting / units have stock of cards on hand
- Educate local units on the process of getting cards
- Educate about types of cards – Birthday, Thank You, In the Service of Christ, Congratulations, etc.
- Anyone can give a Gift to Mission card (don’t even have to be in UMW or United Methodist)
- Seasonal promotion…lifting up particular cards at different times of year, or for various special events.
- New school year – send to teachers End of school year – congratulations!
- If every local unit gave just $5.00 more in the Gift to Mission channel…we would exceed our goal.
- Social media promotion of various cards, seasons, opportunities
- Local units promote the cards church-wide as opportunity to support mission around the world
- Partner “sale” of cards with other groups in the church when fundraising opportunities are happening.
- Special social media links to reach young women, online challenges from social media about making gifts. Online giving…cards online.
