Stewardship Generosity Report 2024: Helpful resources

The findings from the Stewardship Generosity Report 2024 confirm there is currently a gap between what UK Christians currently give and what they could give.

The more engaged Christians are with their faith and the causes they support – especially when those causes build trust with regular, transparent communication that helps their donors understand the tangible impact of their support - the more the gap closes.

In partnership together, we need to nurture and normalise a stronger culture of generosity culture based on transparent communication. One that builds trust by supporting and evidencing faithful stewardship of resources; one that makes talking about giving an everyday reality; and one that, above all gets people excited about the very real difference they can make to their chosen causes. We've compiled a list of helpful resources to get you started.


Helpful resources:

For charities and churches

The Stewardship Partner Account for Churches and Charities can help you to invite generosity and increase your support base, so that you feel equipped and encouraged to grow your vision and further your missional impact.

Explore our training and events opportunities, which include our Lunchtime Dial-In sessions for anyone involved in the financial stewardship of a church or charity. The free Financial health check tool enables church and charity leaders to work through all the key functional areas, diagnosing and suggesting actions for improvement as needed.

We also offer a range of professional services for churches and charities specifically designed to support churches and Christian charities in raising their standards of attitude towards money, accountability and administration. Read more about our thinking on this area in our blog on raising the standard in the list below.
