Planned Giving Workshop

Grace Episcopal Church
110 North Church Street
Berryville, VA 22611

Planned giving is a vital part of the resources the Diocese of Virginia offers for churches. A robust planned giving ministry can generate current gifts to support your church's annual operating budget and capital campaigns as well as develop long term gifts. Planned giving is simply creative giving, in that it helps people make gifts they did not think they could make using assets they had not thought of using. Join Deal Tompkins on July 29 at 10:00 pm to learn more about creative giving. You don’t want to miss it! 

Registration is $25 per church for up to three participants. Scholarships are available. To register, click here.
