What does it mean to make a pledge?

How do I pay my pledge?

What does it mean to be a good steward?

I take my commitments seriously. I'm thinking about pledging, but I'm concerned about my employment status. If I have a change in my status, can I adjust my pledge?

I'm a young adult and don't have a lot to give right now. Will my pledge of a small amount make a difference?

I have given faithfully in the past, but I have never made a formal pledge. Why should I?

Who has access to my giving amounts?

When does my pledge go into effect?

Will Saint Michael send me statements?

 

 

 What does it mean to make a pledge?

The Church asks each year for "estimates of giving" to plan for annual budgeting of expenditures.

How do I pay my pledge?

You can request weekly offering envelopes or ask the church to set up automatic giving to fit your budgeting schedule, (MasterCard, Visa, or ACH debit). To manage a recurring donation online, you will be prompted to choose an option when you make your pledge. Gifts of appreciated stock are also accepted.

What does it mean to be a good steward?

In modern terms, a steward is a "manager," given responsibility to administer faithfully all that God has entrusted to us - making a difference in the world as a follower of Jesus Christ.

I take my commitments seriously. I'm thinking about pledging, but I'm concerned about my employment status. If I have a change in my status, can I adjust my pledge?

Yes, your estimate of giving can be changed at any time for any reason in a confidential way. Just email

I'm a young adult and don't have a lot to give right now. Will my pledge of a small amount make a difference?

Yes! If everyone who hasn't been giving committed to give (regardless of the amount), the church could surpass our current level of giving. Your gift makes a great deal of difference.

I have given faithfully in the past, but I have never made a formal pledge. Why should I?

We are grateful for your stewardship in any form at Saint Michael. Our Annual Pledge Effort is critically important because it is the revenue base on which the Vestry depends for funding the ongoing budget of the church. The church budget is built with the pledges of parishioners.

Who has access to my giving amounts?

The only people with ongoing access to the giving rolls are the Director of Giving and Contributions staff.

When does my pledge go into effect?

January 1, 2016. You may prepay a pledge or pay at yearend if it better fits your family's budget.

Will Saint Michael send me statements?

Yes, if you give, you will receive a quarterly statement of your contributions for your tax records and to confirm the accuracy of our records. In addition, you will receive a 5th quarter statement in January, 2017.
