Pledging Q & A
Each fall, we offer every member of the parish the opportunity to support the ministry of Trinity Episcopal Church by pledging a contribution to the upcoming annual budget. Parishioners’ pledged offerings provide 85% of our annual income. While the campaign is conducted in the fall, we accept pledges at any time throughout the year.
Annual pledges fund the church’s operation and support all that the Church does in its many ministries. Your annual pledge is essential if we are to sustain our existing ministries and begin to address our goals for the future.
The vestry formulates and approves the annual operating budget based on written pledges. Difficult decisions are required each year because needs always exceed pledges. Pledging is critically important because the vestry is committed to a balanced budget.
Planning responsibly is an important part of stewardship at Trinity.
