A Serialized Exploration of The State of Generosity

 

Barna Group has been researching generosity for decades and we felt compelled to revisit and expand upon the topic during this unique season of ministry.

 

Our aim is to equip pastors, nonprofit leaders, financial advisors and more with fresh insights on generosity and stewardship. In partnership with Gloo and a collective of sponsors, Barna Group is mapping today’s giving landscape and looking to the future of generosity.

 

Multiple reports will emerge from this landmark project, which we’re calling The State of Generosity Series.

The Giving Landscape

This first volume in this multi-volume series sets our scene. 

In The Giving Landscape, you’ll get an updated view of generosity, as well as a peek into the motivations and priorities of givers—especially those in the Church. 

We hope you’ll be encouraged by how givers are approaching generosity from a faithful, focused and deeply personal posture. And we’re confident you’ll find nuggets of insight and wisdom that can inform the way you think about, preach about and plan around giving.
