In my last blog, I wrote about how some business owners are dramatically increasing their giving. They are doing so by giving away part of their business interest.
A recent study by Empty Tomb, an Illinois based research organization shows some troubling signs for church giving. From 2007 to 2008, churches saw a decrease of $20.02 in per member gifts.
As we approach year end (can you believe it is only eight weeks away?), we are in the season where business owners in particular are beginning to focus upon their year end books. Often, the work is feverish, and goes down to the wire.
