Ways to Give

Gifts of kindness, time, skills, passion, and money make visible the love and generosity that sustain our community and its mission. Read about Stewardship and Generosity.

Notes about giving

When giving, please include your name and your address and postal code if these are not already on file. The church will send you a tax receipt at the end of the year. (Tax receipts will yield a tax reduction up to 44% of the value of the donation.)

In addition to your personal information, indicate whether the donation is to go towards:

  • General operating: This supports our staff and pays the bills for our mortgage, building, and programs.
  • Share the Plate: We donate half of our non-designated/non-pledge Sunday offering each Sunday to small local non-profit organizations that are in line with our church’s mission.
  • Capital Fund: Capital funds help protect or enhance our building, grounds and equipment, e.g., parking lot, furnace, roof, elevator.
  • Endowment Fund: Your gift grows Endowment Fund principal. Over time, Interest and dividends contribute to operations.
