Participants Introduction for Lilly Endowment Funded Projects
Thank you for participating in this exercise to more fully understand personal and congregational financial leadership and literacy. Our goal is to understand a participant’s skills in this area of ministry as part of the Lilly Endowment funded Clergy Financial Well-Being Initiative. We are grateful for your participation and thank you for helping us continue our research and learning from each of the education components of this project.

In preparation for the upcoming workshop, we are asking all participants to complete a survey as we evaluate the resources and strategies implemented through this project. We will keep your identity confidential and will share any summaries or observations from the data collected with you. Thank you for your leadership and for participating in our research and assessment exercised throughout this project!
