Promoting Legacy Sunday

Legacy Sunday 

On Legacy Sunday, you can plan a service on generosity, as well as provide informational resources to your potential donors about how they can use planned giving with the help of the American Baptist Foundation to empower your ministry and mission. 

Planning a Legacy Sunday 

Planning a Legacy Sunday involves several components: 
- Promoting the date in advance 
- Providing the congregation with informational resources 
- Developing a service about what it means to steward God's resources while leaving a legacy 

Below, we've provided you with all of the resources necessary for each of these three steps. We believe that it is important for ministries to have a conversation about generosity through planned giving and that is why we want to partner with you.
