Every spring WaterStone hosts a gathering for ministries and nonprofits across the state of Colorado. This year, over 30 attendees braved the April blizzard to learn how to tell the story of intentional giving to their donors. It was truly a blessing to equip these ministries with the tools needed to unlock more resources for their ministry and it was a joy to see the Lord work through the attendees, who collectively share a passion to build the Kingdom.
After opening in prayer followed by a short teaching on biblical giving, attendees were taught the basics of asset-based giving, with case studies focused on real estate and S Corp gifts. We also talked through the benefits of a Charity Partnership Package with WaterStone and the turn-key marketing solutions available for ministries to use for their donors.
This year’s speakers included:
- Joe Arioto: “Why Give? Why WaterStone”
- John Mulder: “Unlocking the Giving Potential of Real Estate and Business Interests”
- Will Stevens: “More Ministry, More Resources: Partnering with WaterStone”
- Mark DeBiase and Bryon Swanson, PhilanthroCorp: “Planned Giving – Building for the Future”
- Dan Reed, Seed Fundraising: “The Foundational Work of the Fundraiser”
Thanks to all those that presented at this year’s Ministry Day, we appreciate the ministry you do and are lifting your work up in prayer!

We look forward to seeing you at the WaterStone Giving Academy August 16-18!
“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.” Romans 12: 4-8
