CGP — The Congregational Giving Profile
CGP helps you monitor your congregation's giving throughout the year based on the way people actually give in your church — your own unique pattern of giving, or Congregational Giving Profile. From week to week or month to month, CGP shows you precisely where your giving stands in relation to where you need to be to meet your budget. When you use CGP, you'll know in June, or even sooner, whether you're on track to meet the budget by December. Learn more and watch introductory video.
