We equip dioceses and parishes with the tools and knowledge to create the best environment for giving and generosity in their churches.

We are delivering the National Giving Strategy which focuses on the following priorities:

  1. Enabling more churches to be supported by diocesan giving advisors
  2. Embedding digital giving within over 50% of parishes 
  3. Improving support, guidance and training for clergy, parishes and dioceses.

The short video below introduces the Building a Generous Church model which underpins our work:
