Giving Summary: 2009

|

Fiscal 2009 witnessed the largest economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Security markets experienced record declines. Yet the Christian Reformed Church was blessed, as the reductions in ministry shares and other gifts were less than anticipated:

  • Total ministry shares receipts were down by 8.8 percent from the prior year.

  • Above-ministry-shares gifts declined by $3.9 million, or 11.5 percent, from fiscal 2008.

  • Estate gifts were down by $2.1 million.

  • Disaster-response gifts, which are tied to specific events, increased by more than $800,000.
