Ways to Give


Your gifts make a difference in Calvary’s mission. We ask that you prayerfully consider what you can give.

Parish Financial Policy Statement

“Being assured of God's love for all people, we intend to be good stewards of the gifts and bequests to the Church. In accordance with our baptismal vows, we will proclaim by word and example the good news of God in Christ, seek and serve Christ in all people, loving our neighbors as ourselves strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of all people.”

Making a Pledge

Members of the parish are encouraged to pledge, which means making a financial commitment to the Calvary community. Like all institutions, Calvary cannot operate without a budget to cover the cost of staff, programming, and building maintenance. Your pledge helps Calvary plan for the year ahead and without it, planning is difficult.

You can pay your pledged amount in a single payment or at intervals of your choosing. Pledges can be made in cash, check or by automatic deduction. If you wish to use pledging envelopes, they are available through the church office.

All pledged amounts are confidential. If at any time you need to alter your pledge for personal reasons, you can contact our office manager.

Of note, Calvary — like all Episcopal churches—pays a “fair share” (10%) of its annual income to the diocese. And, like all Episcopal churches, Calvary doesn't receive any financial support from the diocese. Calvary's operation and financial security depend entirely upon the congregation.
