There is something we would like to ask you to consider that could help significantly improve our parish finances. It relates not to how much you contribute, but rather the way in which you contribute.
During the summer vacation months, holiday weekends, and also during bad weather, our parish sees a dramatic drop in our Sunday collections. Despite best intentions, those funds are never fully recovered. This hurts our ability to provide for the needs of our parish.
To help make it more convenient for you to financially support the parish, we offer an electronic giving option. This program offers you the opportunity to make automated financial contributions from your checking or savings account to Church of the Annunciation. Electronic giving costs you nothing and provides benefits to us.
- Stabilizes parish income with your scheduled contributions
- Saves hours of administrative time spent processing donations
Electronic giving also benefits you.
- Makes giving more convenient – contribute directly from your checking or savings account
- Saves you money – no checks to write means no checks to pay for
While electronic giving provides you with flexibility and convenience, it will also ensure that we are making the best use of God’s gifts in our parish. Increased predictability and reliability of your financial support will allow us to serve the needs of our parish more efficiently and more effectively.
If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please complete an Electronic Giving Payment Authorization Form. You specify your contribution amount, how often you would like to contribute, and the specific date when funds will be transferred from your account. Please return your completed form to the Parish Center or drop it in the collection basket in an envelope marked Electronic Giving.
Thank you for your continued support of Annunciation parish.
