A range of resources and ideas to help parishes encourage legacy giving are available on www.parishresources.org.uk
You can also download A Short Guide to Encouraging Giving through Legacies for suggested easy actions that any parish can take to promote legacy gifts locally, along with reassuring ‘do’s and don’ts’ to help you make the most of any opportunities whilst avoiding the pitfalls.
For example, why should your PCC have a legacy policy? Download example legacy policies here. What’s the link between legacy giving and Christian stewardship? What are the barriers to legacy giving in your parish? Why are some people reluctant to talk about them? How can you help your congregation to see that gifts in Wills can make your church’s dreams for local mission and ministry come true? And where can you go for more help and resources? All this and more on the Parishes Resources website and in the Short Guide.
You can also order your own customisable parish legacy leaflet using a template plus your own local photos, stories, introduction from your priest etc. Here are examples from Lockerley and Itchen Valley parishes More on this coming soon!
