WHAT IS MEANT BY "EFFECTUAL" GIVING?
The dictionary defines the word "effectual" as follows:
In 2010, President and Founder, Brad Gornto, decided to establish and build a new breed of planned giving & philanthropic consulting company. A company where everything we do, say and recommend to our clients would be centered around a single word, "effectual." By 2012, this mission had become such a reality for the business model that Brad decided to change the name of the company to Effectual Giving, LLC.
The word "effectual" has such a defining meaning in all aspects of life, such as our faith, our families and our business life. Perhaps the clearest example of the use of the term, which is also how Brad came up with the company's name, is found in the Christian doctrine known as the "effectual calling of Christ." As taught in the Bible, the first step in becoming a Christian is for one to hear the spiritual calling of God made through the Holy Spirit, and based on Christ's redemptive work on the cross. This heavenly calling is "effectual" not because of anything that man attempts to do, but rather because its source is a sovereign God and Creator, who is certainly able to produce an intended and desired effect in making such a calling for his children.
This "effectual" concept translates into everything we do for our valued clients, who consist of universities, hopsitals, Christian and faith-based charities, as well as athletes, public figures and philanthropic families. We are truly a result-driven planned giving consulting firm with one goal in mind, that is, to turn "proposed" or "recommended" planned gifts into "effectual" or "actual" gifts for charitable orgnaizations and families across the United States. In doing so, Effectual Giving is effectively changing the common misconception that all planned gifts are difficult and deferred in nature, into the truth that planned giving can reap immediate, fruitful and productive gifts for the charitable organization to further their respective mission and vision.
