Updated Report of the FRC First Survey of Parishes 3 15 18

One of the priority areas of work for the FRC is ongoing knowledge development about what parishes are now doing, the sharing of that knowledge and facilitation of mutually beneficial learning from one another.  A first survey of current parish fundraising practices took place from late November 2017 through mid-January 2018 via an online survey sent to all clergy in charge of EDOW congregations followed by three email follow-ups to parishes that had not yet responded. The results reported here are from the 61 parishes that responded, a response rate of 70%, as of March 15, 2018.
