As of Nov 5 2023, we have received pledges of $150,000, which is 27% toward our goal of $550,000. This goal was set to provide for salaries, expenses, and programs as established by the Vestry and Rector. We would like to reach (or surpass!) our goal prior to Thanksgiving. Please prayerfully consider your pledge amountContinue reading “1st Week of 2024 Stewardship Campaign off to a good start – but far from the finish line”
It is not too late to Pledge! Please email your pledge commitment for 2023 to Molly Reynolds. Or consider increasing your pledge already submitted. Everything will help to carry on the worship services, staffing, programs and facilities that are important to St. Franciscans.
Thank you all,
Pledging as a Joyful Practice. The practice of pledging puts us in a position to be responsible stewards of the many gifts that God has bestowed on us. If you haven’t yet pledged–or if you’ve never pledged–try it!
Every year the St. Francis budget includes a line item for Outreach to be distributed by the Outreach Committee to worthy organizations on behalf of the parish.
Thanks to all who responded to the recent plea for additional pledges. The total pledges received has increased but $139,400 is still needed to provide the needed finances for the 2023 Budget.
Over $200,000 more is needed to meet the goal! Last year at this time we had received 95 pledges totaling $497,000. We need much more to fund the 2023 budget and to continue the programs and ministries that Franciscans desire and enjoy.
As of December 14, 71 pledges totaling $361,318 have been received. We have a long way to go to reach the goal of $600,000. Have you made your pledge yet? Would you consider increasing a pledge already submitted? The support of everyone is what allows the ministries and programs of St. Francis to continue. Please support our parish in every way that you can!
This Sunday began our Annual Fund Drive. St. Francis Church receives no outside funding and is totally dependent on the income provided by those who pledge a dollar amount or a portion of their income to St. Francis or who are regular contributors who do not pledge.
As of January 5, 107 pledging units have promised $558,896. The goal of $600,000 is within reach with your help. It is never too late to send in a pledge to support St. Francis.
How are we doing with our Annual Fund Campaign and meeting our budget for 2022? We are looking to hear from another 55 families over the next three weeks.
