Year-Round StewardshipMark EwertAn online workshop presented on November 18, 2010, led by Mark Ewert, UUA Congregational Stewardship Services Consultant and Certified Leadership Coach.

The FORTH Stewardship Development Program wrapped up a 7-site demonstration project in June of this year. It was based on content from the widely-used congregational text resource, Beyond Fundraising: A Complete Guide to Congregational Stewardship by Wayne Clark. The demonstration project generated many significant areas of intelligence and usable best practices for UU congregations.

This workshop reviewed the findings of the FORTH demonstration, detailing some of the achievements and challenges to implementing year-round stewardship, and discussed next steps in the further development of FORTH.

Participants were asked to share their own experiences and tips for implementing effective stewardship programs.

Mark Ewert is a congregational stewardship consultant for the Unitarian Universalist Association; his focus is on helping congregations to grow their cultures of generosity. In addition to 10 years as a fundraising professional, Mark has been a fundraising consultant, facilitator, and teacher for nonprofit organizations. He is also a certified leadership coach in private practice. For more information, please visit his website at http://www.generositypath.com
