Gratitude Based

Cultivate grateful giving in your parish.

A budget based in gratitude recognizes that resources might need to shift from supporting what we’ve always done to supporting what we might do. The materials in this packet are adapted from a larger program that UTO offers, but these are intended for a much quicker process with basically three main points of contact: a gratitude-based parish survey, a pledge packet, and an ingathering Sunday for pledges.

To use: Download the packet and adapt to use for your parish. We highly recommend reading through the entire packet before beginning. Any text in red should be adjusted to fit your context, but all materials in this packet can be adjusted for your parish.

Additional Materials

We’ve also created a  gratitude-based stewardship plan for your parish for the entire year as well as for kids. As a supplemental gratitude practice, check out the paper chain activity. Simply click the button to download.
