Grateful Giving


Description: Grateful Giving is the Foundation’s unique offertory enhancement program, combining critical faith formation with successful techniques of inspiring increased giving. To date, nearly 50 parishes have offered this program across the Diocese.  In 2015, parishes experienced an average increase in weekly offertory of 23% (ranging from 15% – 36%).

After completing the Grateful Giving program at a parish, we encourage you to continue to partner with the Stewardship Office for additional stewardship formation/education opportunities, which continues parish engagement beyond one’s treasures.

You can answer YES to all these questions with Grateful Giving:

  • Are you meeting your budget through regular weekly offerings?
  • Do you have the financial resources to provide for or expand your parish ministries?
  • Is your offertory keeping pace with inflation?
  • Is your offertory enough to secure the future of the parish?


  • Immediate spike in offertory
  • 100% of increased revenue benefits the parish
  • Significant cost savings
  • Have an experienced partner
  • Requires no money up front
  • Investment guarantee
