What happens to the money?
100 percent of your financial gift goes directly to St. Luke’s ministry and mission. Our treasurers are volunteer parishioners who accept no fees for their administration of parish funds. Parish expenses are most always greater than the funds we receive in pledges; thus, all of your pledge is applied to current, budgeted ministry expenses.
How do I make a gift?
What is a pledge? Why is it helpful to pledge rather than give?
A pledge is a commitment to support St. Luke’s at a certain, regular dollar figure throughout the year. Pledges may be made at any time in the year. Pledges let us budget based on what you and other parishioners commit to offer, allowing allow the parish leadership to be better stewards of parishioner gifts through our planning process.
What is St. Luke’s Legacy Society?
St. Luke’s Legacy Society consists of parishioners who have included a gift to St. Luke’s in their estate. We are normally able to receive liquid and non-liquid gifts. Please contact the rector or a member of St. Luke’s Endowment Committee about making such a gift. Those who indicate on their pledge cards that they have made a Legacy gift to St. Luke’s will be enrolled in St. Luke’s Legacy Society, as well as in the Bishop’s Society of the Diocese of Olympia.
