32 are new pledges
87 represent increases from 2012
117 are the same, and
26 represent decreases from 2012.
For 2012, we had 261 pledges for $723,000.
And for those whose pledge we have received -- thank you from everyone in your Epiphany family! It's not too late if you would like to make a pledge. Contact Jane White or any member of the stewardship team
Gifts of stock to Epiphany
Saturday, December 31st marks the parish’s year-end, and it’s the last day for contributions to be counted as 2011 gifts for tax purposes. A gift of securities to the Parish of the Epiphany by the end of the year may bring considerable tax savings to a donor. If you are interested in transferring securities to the Parish of the Epiphany, please contact Suzy Westcott, our financial administrator. She will be happy to give you transfer instructions. In addition, before you actually transfer the stock, please be sure to let her know what stock you are planning to transfer, approximately how many shares (or approximate value), and for what your gift is designated (2012 pledge payment, 2013 pledge payment, etc.)
so that your gift can be properly credited to you.
A Prayer for the Parish’s Annual Commitment Campaign
Thank you, Lord, for the work that we have before us.
Be with us as we make decisions and as we work together
for the stewardship of our church.
Be with us as we reach out to our membership
for their gifts of time, talent, and treasure.
Finally, help our campaign to be a success
so that our parish community
continues to grow, to serve, and to flourish.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
