Giving As A Family

Explore resources and tips to encourage generosity in your family.

Teaching children the value of stewardship and encouraging them to embrace a life of generous giving holds immense significance in their faith journey. Cru Foundation wants to walk with your family through this adventure of faith, stewardship, and making an eternal impact.

Family Giving

Practical Tips:

Engage your children in open conversations about where you give and our call as stewards of God’s blessings. Use age-appropriate language and real-life examples to help them understand the concept. Encourage questions and active participation in discussions, which will foster critical thinking about the needs of others and the blessings they have in their own lives.

As your children grow older, involve them in researching and selecting charities to support. Provide them with information about different organizations and their missions. Discuss the various needs these charities address, and encourage your family members to choose causes that resonate with them personally. A Great Commission Donor Advised Fund is a great tool to involve your children in giving decisions.

Go national or international on a short-term trip and serve side-by-side with your family members to spread the gospel. Here are the trips available through Cru’s ministries:

Spend quality family time by engaging in volunteer activities together. Whether it’s serving at a soup kitchen, participating in a charity event, or cleaning up a local park, your family can witness firsthand the impact of their efforts. It also creates lasting memories and strengthens family bonds while making an impact on the lives of others. View ways to volunteer with Cru in your local community.
