All members are asked to consider gifts toward this special campaign that are above and beyond their regular offerings and contributions. Gifts can be made in a variety of ways.
Long-Term Subscriptions: Pledges payable over three years are easier for most givers and essential to meeting our goal. It would be impractical, if not impossible, to reach our objectives with one-time, out-of-pocket gifts. Gifts may be made in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual installments. A 10% initial investment is encouraged.
Non-Cash Gifts: An alternate way to support our cause are non-cash gifts. For example, securities such as stocks and bonds; real estate such as land, homes, vacation and rental properties; or personal property such as artwork, automobiles, jewelry, and antiques.
Deferred Gifts: You can support our efforts through deferred gifts, which can be given now but not received until later. These can include gifts through a will by bequest, life insurance policies or annuities, and trust arrangements.
These special giving opportunities are available to donors of qualifying gift amounts and represent a "carry-over" from the Journey of Faith Campaign. These show what various level gifts will enable the church to do. They also allow donors the unique chance to dedicate the gift in honor or memory of whomever they choose. Gift amounts from the Journey of Faith Campaign can be combined with gift amounts for this Completing the Vision Campaign for gift naming purposes.
* Indicates the Gift Opportunity is already taken. Item prices are not necessarily reflective of their costs. Rather, they are based on the item’s prominence, our needs, and our community’s gift abilities. Although these gift contributions may be made over the three-year giving period, recognition will be given when the gift is received in full. Gift donors will have their names or the names of those they honor commemorated in a special way, as will all campaign donors.
If we need to borrow $1.9 million from the Diocese to complete the project, please consider the substantial savings that various sized gifts can help us to realize over the life of our loan, and what these savings might enable our church to accomplish.
